Training courses

Risk assessment 
The COSHH Regulations require employers to assess the risk to their employees and to prevent or adequately control these risks. We will go through a COSHH risk assessment using iChemistry and review how it affects your business.

Chemical handling (half day)
General chemical training for those using chemicals and hazardous substances in their business. The course will include what makes a chemical dangerous, how chemical products should be handled, how to read a safety data sheet and where such information can be found in iChemistry.

Substitution (half day)
A comprehensive course on how to work to replace dangerous chemicals. We cover how COSHH regulations apply to substitution and help you with prioritisation. For those using iChemistry you will also be shown how the system’s documentation tool can be used for substitution.

REACH (half day)
A comprehensive course in the REACH legislation (regulation (EC) 1907/2006), which is the EU’s primary legislation for chemicals. During the training, we go through the most important parts of the legislation, for example candidate list, Appendix XIV about permits and Appendix XVII about restrictions. We also go through the roles and responsibilities of manufacturers, distributors, purchasers and users of chemicals.

Chemicals legislation (half day)
The course gives information about the current chemical legislation and what it means to you as a manufacturer, importer or downstream user of chemicals. We go through the EU regulations, REACH and CLP, as well as national legislation regarding chemicals.

System training courses

iChemistry (full day)
A system training course for chemicals users that provides essential knowledge about our system and how to get the best out of it. The course is usually held at the customer’s premises and using their own system, which creates the conditions for fast, simple and successful implementation.

System training (half day) + Risk assessment (full day)
Training that combines iChemistry and risk assessments. This provides essential knowledge of the system and the legislation covering risk assessments and their practical application to your business.
