Asbestos Awareness Training Online

The Asbestos Awareness Training Online delivered by Train4Academy follows the required syllabus set out by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

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 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.

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