Asbestos Awareness 1/2 Day out of 369 Delegates

Completing an Asbestos Awareness Course 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.
