Health and Safety Training -
Half Day Asbestos Awareness Training Course

Asbestos awareness training is essential for employees whose work holds the potential to expose them to asbestos. Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 (Amended 2012) puts a requirement on employers to ensure that their staff have undergone suitable asbestos awareness training so that they are aware of the potential dangers they may face and also the procedures they must follow in the event they are working in the vicinity of asbestos containing materials (ACMs).

Who should attend?

Asbestos Awareness training is required to be given to employees whose work could expose them to asbestos. In particular, it should be given to all demolition workers and workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades where it is foreseeable that their work will disturb the fabric of the building, because asbestos products may become exposed during their work.

Aims and objectives of the course:
To provide an awareness and development of knowledge to site based employees of the hazards and risks posed by asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) within their everyday working environment and an overview of the legislative measures in place to safeguard themselves and others affected by work activities.
At the end of the course delegates will know:

  • The requirements of the Control of Asbestos at Work.
  • The properties of asbestos and its effects on health and the associated health risks.
  • The types uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant.
  • The locations where asbestos is commonly found and practical controls for asbestos safety.
  • The general procedures to be followed when dealing with an emergency in the event of the uncontrolled release of asbestos dust in the workplace.
