Asbestos awareness training is intended to give employers and employees the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos during any normal work which could disturb the fabric of a building, or other items which might contain asbestos.
The course will cover the properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of developing lung cancer.
The different types, usage, likely locations and how to avoid the risk of exposure.
The general procedures to deal with an emergency, for example an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace.
Basic awareness training will not prepare workers or self-employed contractors to carry out any works with asbestos. If a worker is planning to carry out work that will disturb such material then please speak to one of our experienced management team who will be happy to assist you further.
