P603 CoSHH Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

P603 PPE Course overview

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

At checkout – there is no need to pay at that stage.  We will send out Invoices approx 5-6 weeks prior to the course start date.

Learning objectives

On completion of the P603 PPE 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.
  • Selection and care of Gloves etc
  • selection and care of Chemical Protective Clothing
  • Decontamination process for PPE


For the P603 PPE course 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 previously 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 (eg P601, P602 and P604) 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).

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

Customer Reviews

“Bill I must thank you for a very enjoyable LEV course. I have to say that, the way you developed the information was first class – the delivery was fluent, natural – in fact it came across as extemporaneous! It was also very informative about the subject so as to enable us to undertake the practical aspects out on site. I don’t profess to be an expert in such matters – but I thought it was very well done and it’s no surprise that your pass rate is high. ( I just hope to be in that statistic!)”

“I would like to give Bill Cassells a huge shout-out. Absolutely fantastic Tutor with more knowledge in LEV training than anyone I have ever met. Just received my LEV certificates today in both P601 and P602. Without the help of Bill this probably wouldn’t have happened. Anybody thinking on doing these LEV courses, look no further than this Man. I will hopefully be doing the P604 Course at some point also.”
