The Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers course covers the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness course with an additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers working with buildings that may contain asbestos. It provides information about the legislation governing asbestos in work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.
Take the asbestos awareness course and learn how to minimise the risks associated with this building material.
Being aware of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the risks associated with them give workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos.
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) 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 come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
As well as informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver content to help you recognise asbestos containing materials, make you aware of where it was used, include steps you can take to minimise the risks and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos.
Each module is rounded off with several multiple-choice questions, you are required to get 100% on these tests to pass the course. You have the opportunity to review all the answers at the end of each module before final submission and will be given 3 attempts to achieve the required result.
