This is the submission site for uploading proof/evidence of report writing activities for Legionella, Local Exhaust Ventilation and Asbestos qualifications.

This short course is aimed at BOHS members who are asked to test for isocyanates. There is only one method approved by the HSE for testing for isocyanates, which  is MDHS 25/4 method. BOHS is licensed to authorise its members to use this method, we need to show that we have adequate controls to comply with Home Office rules around the management of the substance used in the testing media. These controls are set out in BOHS Standard Operating Procedure. We are required to audit for compliance with this procedure each year.

The audit results indicate that BOHS needs to do more in order to ensure compliance. If we cannot demonstrate this, the license for members to use this method is at risk. The Faculty of Occupational Hygiene has updated its requirements for members who use the method of testing to participate in this short course.

By participating you will ensure you are familiar with the standard operating procedure requirements and protect the Societies compliance with the Home Office licensing conditions. 

This is the submission site for uploading proof of CPD activities if you have been selected for the 2021 audit. All proof must be submitted through this site by Friday 10 June 2022
