Our online Asbestos Awareness Training course is to help the learner understand the dangers of asbestos, especially those who work in trades that take part in building maintenance or refurbishment.
Asbestos kills about 5000 workers each year. Few people realise that most buildings constructed before the turn of the millennium will have asbestos in their fabric. This is safe, until it is disturbed by alterations, and if fibres are breathed into airwaves, they can lodge there for many years, causing irritation and eventually cancer.
It is your badge of quality and will meet all audit requirements, apart from helping to ensure the safety of your staff.
This course is for anyone whose work may disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos. It should be given to all those involved with refurbishment, maintenance and associated trades or to those who supervise such employees.
The aim of this online Asbestos Awareness Training course is to help people understand the dangers posed by asbestos and to avoid carrying out work that will cause the release of dangerous asbestos fibres resulting in serious health problems or death. Knowledge will bring safety.
