    What you Need to Do

    Asbestos Awareness training is a necessity. The Health and Safety Executive states that every employer must make sure that anyone who is liable to disturb asbestos during their normal work, or who supervises those employees, gets the correct level of information, instruction and training so that they can work safely and competently without risk to themselves or others.

    This can be achieved through Asbestos Awareness training.

    Who should Attend the Asbestos Awareness Training

     

    Any person that may come into contact with Asbestos during their normal working day including but not limited to:

    • Construction Workers
    • Service Engineers
    • Property Maintenance
    • Facilities Management
    • Building Surveyors
    • Architects
    • etc.

    Asbestos Awareness Training will not prepare workers to carry out work with asbestos containing materials. If a worker is planning to carry out work that will disturb asbestos containing materials then further training will be required (please get in contact for further details).
