Asbestos awareness training is for anyone who might possibly disturb asbestos during the course of their work. It is intended to give the candidate a level of knowledge about asbestos but does not enable them to work with asbestos for which further training is required.
Asbestos awareness training briefly comprises:
- The properties of asbestos and it’s historical context
- Health effects and epidemiology
- Typical asbestos containing materials and their uses in building and plant
- Emergency procedures and dealing with accidental damage
- How to avoid the risks from asbestos
We are UKATA certified for our asbestos awareness training and each candidate will sit a short exam comprising multiple choice questions, after which they will receive a certificate should they answer them correctly.
