It provides learners with the knowledge and skills to recognise the risks associated with hazardous substances and how to control them.

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health or COSHH regulations apply to any substance that could cause injury or illness to someone and covers most work places. If you are dealing with chemicals, even paints and toilet cleaning chemicals or creating anything that could damage someone you are responsible under COSHH.
