The Asbestos Awareness course is designed for anyone who may come into contact with asbestos in their work. Most commonly, that includes builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other building related and maintenance trades.
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.
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.
Being aware of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the risks associated with them gives workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos.
The Asbestos Awareness course is approved by leading industry bodies ROSPA and the IATP.
