Asbestos Awareness Via Zoom

COURSE SUMMARY

The aim of this course is to give you information so that you can avoid disturbing asbestos when carrying out your work.

Overview
Asbestos is an extremely hazardous substance that causes serious ill-health to anyone who disturbs or damages it. For this reason, all workers who may come across asbestos or asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) must be trained so that they can work safely. This includes work with potential ACMs, accidental discovery of asbestos, and accidental damage to asbestos and ACMs.

This CITB accredited Asbestos Awareness (Category A) course provides a comprehensive introduction to the dangers of working with asbestos. By taking our training you will understand how to comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. You will understand what asbestos is and where you may encounter it, the dangers associated with asbestos exposure, and what to do if you discover asbestos. This knowledge will help you or your team to stay safe around asbestos.
