Asbestos Awareness

[  HALF DAY  ]

This Asbestos Awareness course is designed to help workers understand the risks associated with asbestos so that they can avoid work which may disturb asbestos and cause ill-health. Asbestos is an incredibly hazardous substance and anyone who is likely to disturb asbestos containing materials in their work must have an awareness of the correct health and safety procedures.

Asbestos Awareness training ensures that workers have sufficient knowledge to work safely. (Note that any workers who plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb asbestos require a higher level of training, which is not supplied by this course. This course does not allow you to work with asbestos containing materials).
