Asbestos Awareness Training Course

The asbestos awareness course is the first step towards training for those who work on any building or premises built before the year 2000 that may contain asbestos materials.

The approved asbestos awareness training course is specifically designed to provide delegates with an appreciation of the requirements of UK legislation.

Asbestos Awareness training is mandatory for those who will or may come into contact with asbestos as part of their daily work activity such as: satellite, aerial installers, solar PV installers, general maintenance staff; electricians, gas fitters; plasterers; roofers; fire and burglar alarm installers; shop fitters; painters and decorators; demolition workers; heating and ventilation engineers; computer installers; plumbers; joiners; construction workers; telecoms engineers and building surveyors.

Course aims and Objectives

  • The properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of lung cancer for asbestos workers who smoke;
  • The types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant;
  • The general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency, for example an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace; and
