Asbestos awareness training.

Duration: 0.5 day

This course involves a presentation on the history of asbestos, relevant legislation, and offers lots of helpful advice for those who may come into contact with asbestos but do not intend to deliberately work with asbestos-containing materials.

Regulation 10 of CAR 2012 demands that workers receive suitable information, instruction and training regarding asbestos in order that can do their work safely.

In most cases this means they must attend an Asbestos Awareness course so they are equipped with enough knowledge to avoid accidentally exposing themselves or those around them to asbestos, we believe it is useful for those attending to learn about asbestos, its history, uses and health implications both whilst at work but also in their personal lives.

With asbestos-related deaths still due to rise until 2025 it is crucial that people continue to attend these courses and arm themselves with the tools to protect themselves and those around them from this Class 1 Carcinogen.

Topics covered in Asbestos Awareness include:

  • History of asbestos
  • Health Implications
  • Legislation
  • Asbestos Products
  • Where Asbestos Is Found
  • Information Sources and understanding them
  • Emergency Procedures

Non-licensed Work with Asbestos training.

If you or members of your workforce intend to carry out low-risk, small-scale work with asbestos materials then they must sit this course to comply with Regulation 10 of CAR2012. They will learn the basics of the law surrounding such work, how to use the various pieces of equipment necessary (including PPE and RPE), decontamination procedures, and – crucially – what work they cannot do.

Bespoke asbestos company training.

It may be the case that you or your workforce already has the relevant asbestos training in place to comply with regulation 10 of CAR2012 but you want to go a step further and undertake specialist training in a specific area such as the taking of potentially asbestos-containing samples, the use of PPE/RPE, or managing asbestos in a small business, for example.

Whatever the need, we can both design and deliver the course.
