Asbestos Awareness

Course Objectives

There are more than 3,000 deaths each year in the UK from asbestos related diseases and this number is expected to continue to rise. Thousands of tonnes of asbestos products were used in building construction in the past and much of it is still in place. Carpenters, electricians, plumbers and others doing maintenance or refurbishment works may be at risk where asbestos products are disturbed. If you own or are responsible for the management of a workplace, whether a factory, warehouse or office which may contain asbestos products, you need to consider risks of exposure to people using or doing works in the building. This half-day course will help you to identify, assess and manage asbestos products in your premises.
