Asbestos Awareness

18th Oct 2018 9:30am-12:30pm

Asbestos awareness training should be given to employees whose work could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos or those who supervise or influence the work.  In particular, it should be given to those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades where it is foreseeable that asbestos containing materials may be present in the work area.

This course has now taken place and provided delegates with a general awareness of the hazards and risks associated with asbestos.  The training covered the key legal and practical implications for those who may come across asbestos in the course of their work and provided guidance on minimising the risk.
