CoSHH Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
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.
Following the P603 training course delegates should understand the:
- Risk-based rationale for selection of CoSHH PPE
- Basis for selection and correct use of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE)
- 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.
