This Asbestos Awareness course is designed to raise awareness of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in a refurbishment/maintenance environment in order to take the appropriate precautions when it is encountered.
Asbestos awareness training helps workers understand the risks associated with the material so that they can avoid work that may disturb asbestos.
It is estimated that around 1.8 million workers remain at risk every day from the possible disturbance of this carcinogenic material.
This half day asbestos awareness course comes with a workbook and is assessed by a multiple choice question assessment.
Any workers who plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb asbestos require a higher level of training, which is not supplied by this course. This course does not allow you to work with asbestos containing materials.
