Learn the basics of asbestos awareness.

Asbestos is a danger in many different sectors and it is estimated that 20 tradesmen, 4 plumbers, 6 electricians and 8 joiners die every week from this hidden killer. It is important to know when there may be a risk of exposure and how to avoid coming into contact with Asbestos.

Asbestos was extensively used as a building material in the UK from the 1950's to the mid-1980's. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation. Any building built before 2000 can obtain asbestos and they can be homes, schools, offices or hospitals. Asbestos materials in good condition are safe unless asbestos fibres become airborne, which happens when materials are damaged. 

This course covers the risk, why we need to avoid exposure and what can happen with exposure or when you are exposed,  as well as what to do if you come across possible Asbestos to ensure you and your work colleagues are kept safe.  The certificate is valid for 3 years. To comply with the HSE recommendations it is advised to complete a refresher every year.

This course is available as a virtual remote class taught by a real instructor though our unique virtual training platform. Take your course from the comfort of your home or work and gain the same qualification as a traditional classroom course.
