Asbestos Awareness Training

In accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR 2012) mandatory Asbestos Awareness Training is required to be given to all employees whos work may expose them to asbestos.

This can include anyone who drills a hole in a wall to a caretaker of a building. Anyone involved in the building industry or installing equipment should receive  asbestos awareness training.

Asbestos Awareness Training

A weekly asbestos Awareness course will be held at our training rooms, Blythe every Friday morning 9:30am – 1pm. And we can usually put together courses at our Blythe training centre to suit the client even at very short notice.

We’re able to come to your premises to train your employees on site. Our courses are run by experienced staff who will be able to tailor the course syllabus to the nature of your business and your employees needs. This can include additional elements to the standard asbestos awareness training that could be unique to your sector.

For example we recently provided a bespoke course for a roofing company who had a large contract to cover a large corrugated roof with a new metal skin.

The Asbestos Awareness Training last for half a day with a short test at the end. A certificate will be issued on completion of the course.

Specialist courses are usually a full day. Our courses include the updated Non Licensed Notifiable requirements that came into force on 30th April 2015 for medical and reporting procedures. Our trainers are all working Asbestos Surveyors, so they can give realistic answers to any questions you choose to ask.
