Maintenance staff, gas fitters, plasterers, roofers, electricians, joiners, shop fitters…
Just the beginning of the list of people working in all kinds of jobs, in all kinds of industries who may come across asbestos as part of their everyday work. The dangers of asbestos when badly managed are now well known and it’s vital that the right people have the right knowledge to protect themselves and others.
A legal obligation
The control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 makes it a legal obligation for asbestos awareness training to be provided to anyone who may come into contact with the substance.
Our UKATA registered asbestos trainers have decades of experience to share with your staff to ensure they are clear on what they need to know to stay safe.
Where and when we provide training is up to you. We can come to your premises, you can come to our purpose-built training centre in Birstall near Leeds, or we can meet somewhere in between. We also run regular courses throughout the UK that you can join.
We can tailor our courses to suit your business’s needs, but all our training covers the crucial basics including:
- where asbestos is found
- health hazards it poses
- recognising asbestos in buildings
- legislation covering asbestos
- managing asbestos when it is identified
