Asbestos Awareness

Educate your employees on the dangers of asbestos.

Course Aims & Objectives

Asbestos awareness is essential for employees whose work holds the potential to expose them to asbestos.

Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) puts a requirement on employers to ensure that their staff have undergone suitable asbestos awareness training.

So that they are aware of the potential dangers they may face and also the procedures they must follow in the event they are working in the vicinity of asbestos-containing materials.

The main group of workers that are deemed to be at risk from asbestos exposure and therefore the groups most requiring asbestos awareness training include:

General Maintenance Staff; Electricians, Plumbers and Gas Fitters; Painters and Decorators; Construction and Demolition Workers; Joiners and Plasterers; Computing and Telecommunications Engineers; Roofers; Architects and Building Surveyors.
