Asbestos Awareness Courses

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

If you work in the building services or construction industries, there is a high chance that you will be coming into contact with asbestos.

Employers must make sure that anyone who is liable to disturb asbestos during their normal work, or who supervises those employees, gets the correct level of information, instruction and training.

Asbestos information, instruction and training is required so that employees can work safely and competently without risk.

You can read more about getting the right information on Asbestos removal, policy and legislation, training and more on our blog.

You may need asbestos training is you are one of the following:

  • General maintenance worker
  • Electrician
  • Plumber
  • Joiner
  • Building surveyor
  • Painters and decorator
  • Plasterer
  • Construction worker
  • Roofer
  • Shop fitter
  • Gas fitter
  • Heating and ventilation engineer
  • Demolition worker
  • Telecommunication engineer
  • Fire/burglar alarm installer
  • Computer and data installer
  • Architect

Asbestos kills around 20 tradespeople every week. It is still a huge danger to professionals, and the public.

If your business is liable to come into contact with or disturb asbestos then workers and supervisors must be able to recognise asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

They are designed to provide you and your employees with a base level of information and training, allowing you to recognise the dangers of asbestos and what to do if you encounter it.
