Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. It was widely used in the construction industry up intil 2000. Unfortunately every year thousands of people fall ill because of exposure to asbestos.
It is now prohibited to use, re-use, sell or supply asbestos or asbestos containing materials or products. However products or materials containing asbestos, which were already installed or in service prior to the prohibition, may remain in place until they are disposed of or reach the end of their service life. As a result, there is still potential for exposure to asbestos in a variety of workplaces.
Asbestos awareness training must be provided for anyone who during the course of their work, could potentially or unknowingly disturb asbestos containing materials. e.g. Plumbers, Electricians, Facilities Managers, Designers, Architects, engineers,
As well as informing you about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver a lot more information about: Recognising asbestos, where it’s used, minimising the risks and the legislation about working with asbestos.
