Protect Yourself & Your Staff With Our Quick, Simple & Convenient Online Asbestos Awareness Training!
SuperSkills Asbestos Awareness Training 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.
As well as informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver content to help them recognise asbestos containing materials, make them aware of where it was used, include steps they can take to minimise the risks and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos.
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.
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.
