Course Description

Course Code : HSAF0230

The use of all asbestos-containing materials was not banned until 1999. This means any building built or refurbished before the year 2000 could contain asbestos.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 requires that every worker who is liable to disturb or come into contact with asbestos containing materials while performing their normal everyday work is required to be trained. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to these employees.

They should be trained so that they can recognise asbestos containing materials and know what to do if they come across them.

 

Aims:

The aim of the course is to provide delegates with suitable and sufficient information to enable them to recognise and avoid risks in order to protect themselves while working in areas where they may disturb asbestos containing materials.

Who should attend:

All persons who are likely to disturb asbestos while carrying out their normal everyday work, or who may influence how work is carried out.
