P603 Course overview

This P603 CoSHH PPE competence-based course follows the BOHS P603 LEV Training Course syllabus. It is designed to provide the theoretical and basic practical knowledge to enable delegates to develop, organise and implement a successful Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) programme in the workplace.


To provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to develop and implement a CoSHH PPE programme in the workplace.

Learning objectives

Following the P603 training course delegates should be able to:

  • Understand the risk-based rationale for selection of CoSHH PPE
  • Understand the basis for selection and correct use of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE)
  • Understand basic maintenance requirements for RPE.


It is assumed that delegates will have some basic knowledge of chemical hazards that could be experienced in the workplace and how they could be controlled by means other than PPE. Having completed the BOHS LEV Training Course modules P601 or P602 would be a great help in understanding these aspects. No other specialist knowledge is however required.

Who should attend?

Engineers, Supervisors, Managers, Health and Safety professional and Technical staff who have day to day dealings with PPE and anyone who is involved in undertaking PPE risk assessments, specifying and issuing PPE and preparing PPE programmes.

Towards professional recognition?

Gain further professional recognition following completion of the P600 series of LEV Training Courses and Qualifications through BOHS (e.g. Certificate of Operational Competence in Control) – which permits the successful candidates to use the post-nominal letters ‘CoC Control’ after their name) and also meets various membership levels for the Society of Operations Engineers (SOE) and the Institute of LEV Engineers (ILEVE).

They may also become eligible for the award of Licentiate of the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene (LFOH). See BOHS for more details.
