Asbestos Awareness

Training Overview:

Asbestos has been the main cause of occupational ill health since about 1950 onwards and is still the greatest single work-related cause of death and ill health. Past exposure is now responsible for about 4000 people dying from asbestos related cancers every year.

Every week 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related disease. If you carry out work on a building that was built or refurbished before the year 2000, you could have been exposed to asbestos, without even knowing it.

As a result of this, since November 2006, asbestos training for maintenance and building operatives has been a legal requirement.

What is it about?
Current legislation places a responsibility on employers to provide adequate training to make employees aware of the risks and potential hazards. This course is designed to provide employees with a basic awareness of the dangers of asbestos and where asbestos may be found.

This course is aimed at all employees who may work in areas that could contain asbestos.
