Asbestos Awareness Training Online

£25.00 + VAT per person

This Asbestos Awareness Training Online Course is rated Class A and satisfies Regulation 10 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

This course is approved by IOSH, the world leading organisation in Occupational Health and Safety.

The Online Asbestos Awareness Training Course delivered by Train4Academy complies fully with the updated Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, which came into force on the 6th April 2012. The Learning Material within the course has being updated in line with the new legislation from the HSE, (The Health and Safety Executive).

The control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012 states that Asbestos Awareness Training is mandatory for anyone who is involved with or affected by disturbing the fabric of a building. This course also helps those responsible for building, the “Duty Holder”, to understand the regulations and know how to provide with maintenance, alterations and repairs.

Until the 1990's most buildings contained Asbestos, and even until the year 2000 Asbestos may be found in some buildings. It was considered a ‘miracle ingredient’ and was added to increase the strength and durability of products.

Gradually the dangers of asbestos began to be realised and we now have the legacy of millions of buildings with asbestos products in their structure. Disturbing the asbestos, either during maintenance work or structural alterations can be dangerous, both for those who undertake the work and for those who are based in the same buildings.

  • The operations which could result in asbestos exposure and the importance of preventive controls to minimise exposure
  • Safe work practices, control measures, and protective equipment
