UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training Courses

Franks Portlock is a UKATA (UK Asbestos Training Association) certified provider of asbestos awareness training courses. Founded in 2006, our national industry experience combines proven consultancy expertise with a personal service to our clients.

About our training sessions

Asbestos awareness training is a mandatory requirement, outlined by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, for anyone who might come into contact with asbestos in the course of their work. It it also recommended for supervisors, managers or anyone else responsible for works which might disturb asbestos. Our training courses are comprehensive and fully compliant with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Examples of those who may come into contact with asbestos include:

  • Anyone who may disturb the fabric of buildings.
  • People who work on contaminated land.
  • Anyone maintaining a building that may be affected by asbestos use.

Our flexible approach means we are able to add supplementary elements to the training if required, making it relevant to your circumstances – that can mean supporting you in working with different types of asbestos, or honing training to the particular maintenance work you may be carrying out.

To book a place on one of our asbestos awareness training courses, or to enquire further, please contact us.
