This online course covers all aspects of asbestos awareness and is aimed at anyone who comes into contact with this dangerous material as part of their work. This is commonly builders, plumbers, electricians and others involved in the building and maintenance trades.
In the UK, the number of asbestos-related deaths is around 5,000 per year.
This Asbestos Awareness Course seeks to reduce this number my improving awareness of its dangers and ways to prevent unnecessary exposure.
Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their staff know where asbestos and related materials are likely to be found, how to avoid exposure and to provide the necessary protective equipment.
During the course you will learn how to recognise asbestos, reduce the risks and understanding current legislation.
You’ll find out exactly what asbestos is, what an asbestos management plan looks like and some of the major diseases associated with working with this potentially dangerous material.
Impartial Examinations are undertaken under the control of UK Certification and this is separate from any Training Activity.
