Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 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 encounter or disturb asbestos.
Our Asbestos Awareness training covers all areas of asbestos awareness and is designed for anyone that may come in to contact with asbestos as part of their job. Traditionally this would be suitable for tradespeople such as builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and building maintenance professionals.
The course is broken down into 4 modules each of which has questions at the end to measure knowledge and understanding of the module content. The four modules are: (1) Properties and risks of asbestos exposure, (2) Different types of asbestos, (3) Avoiding the risks from asbestos, and (4) An outline of asbestos legislation. Some of the key topics covered in the modules are recognising asbestos, where it is used, minimising the risks of working with asbestos and the legislation for working with asbestos.
You are given the chance to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission and you will be given 3 attempts at each module to achieve a Pass mark of 100%.
