asbestos awareness online training course

Asbestos-related diseases kill more people than road accidents in the UK each year, and the number is still growing. It is estimated that deaths relating to asbestos exposure are set to peak around 2016.

It is a dangerous assumption that asbestos is a health issue of the past. Every year, thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos due to it being widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

Once asbestos fibres are inhaled, it is impossible to tell who may ultimately suffer ill health, and when this might occur.

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 providing the knowledge required to avoid the risks of exposure to Asbestos, and will help you identify when and where you might find it.
