Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK. It was extensively used as a building material in the UK from the 1950s through to the mid-1980s. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation.

Any building built before the year 2000 (houses, factories, offices, schools, hospitals etc) can contain asbestos.

This course is intended for people whose work may bring them into contact with asbestos, from shop fitters to electricians, from plumbers to decorators. It is also suitable for duty holders looking to gain a basic overview of their asbestos responsibilities.

The Asbestos Awareness course is aimed as an awareness session for those workers who may come into contact with asbestos as part of their work, or those duty holders requiring a basic overview. It is not intended and is not suitable for those working on asbestos removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Asbestos Awareness course is delivered over half a day (three hours). This enables the course to be provided to two different groups on one day, meaning that not all of your staff need to be away from the workplace at the same time.

Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist delegates.

The Asbestos Awareness course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

A short written assessment is undertaken at the end of the course which delegates must successfully complete.

Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course and the assessment.
