Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
Our Category A, Asbestos Awareness online course meets all the legal requirements for employee awareness training and tells you about avoiding the risks of exposure to Asbestos, and will help you identify when and where you might find it.
Each module is followed by a short set of randomised questions; these tests must be completed before the course is completed.
Additionally we offer a course specifically aimed at Architects and Designers who might be working on renovation or development projects where exposure to Asbestos may be a risk.
