Asbestos Awareness Online Course
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, although the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) warn that any building built before the year 2000 could still contain asbestos. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation.
Asbestos is dangerous when the fibres are breathed in, meaning that when the material is intact it is normally safe, but when broken or disturbed (e.g. during demolition or renovation projects) it is extremely dangerous as the fibres/dust are inhaled and can cause asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
The effects on a person's health are similar to most COSHH risks in that the onset of ill-health may take a number of years to develop, when the damage has already been done. Although asbestos dust and fibres may be considered by many as a COSHH substance, asbestos is not covered under COSHH regulations as it has its own set of regulations, namely the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Due to the high risk nature of asbestos, it is vital that workers in industries such as the construction industry are all aware of the dangers to health and safety that asbestos poses, including how to recognise it and what to do if it is encountered.
This is a Category A course on asbestos awareness. As well as informing you about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver a lot more information about: recognising asbestos, where it is used, minimising the risks, and the legislation about working with asbestos.
The course comprises the following modules:
- Module 1: Properties and Risks of Asbestos Exposure
- Module 2: Different Types of Asbestos
- Module 3: Avoiding the Risks from Asbestos
- Module 4: An Outline of Asbestos Legislation

Multiple Licences for Businesses
If you are a business or organisation and have a number of employees that you would like to take the Asbestos Awareness online course, we offer discounts for multiple purchases, with a greater discount amount available the more courses that are purchased.
Purchasing a business license will grant the buyer administration access from where they can issue log-in usernames and passwords to their employees. This allows businesses to take advantage of the greater discounts on offer even if they do not currently know the names of every individual who will be taking the online course, which is particularly useful if you plan to grant access to employees over a period of time rather than all at once (e.g. getting new starters to complete the course). It also negates the need to fill in a massively long booking form with all their names when purchasing!
