CoSHH risk assessment 2003 is a new user-friendly multi-media course that

office, but enables delegates to study at their workplace or home rather than
having to travel.
The course covers CoSHH regulations, hazard data, CHIP regulations and a
number of other key factors in the control of hazardous substances. It allows a
much greater degree of flexibility, and rather than having to complete it in
two days, you can finish as and when you like.
Original course tutor, Geoff Hornby, has teamed up with computer-based
training specialists to design the programme, which contains a CD that aims to
give the health and safety professional everything they need to gain a

full copy of lecture notes, copies of both written and practical assessments
and a videotape to accompany the practical exam. This allows the course content
to be reviewed over and over again.
The programme, which can be purchased either on individual or five-person
licences, costs £575+VAT for a one-person licence, or £1,950+VAT for a
