Course Outline

The dangers of asbestos are well known, so well known that many workers fear any contact with it or even being in proximity to it. Asbestos can kill and that is why it is important that anyone who might come across it knows how to identify asbestos and what to do about it.

This Asbestos Awareness training course is designed to give workers the knowledge and confidence to undertake certain asbestos related tasks and to inform them of what to do if they come across asbestos during their normal work activities. People who work in loft spaces, near boilers, old electrical equipment or in old buildings may be reluctant to undertake their work tasks due to a lack of asbestos training. It also helps employers to comply with HSE requirements and the Asbestos Regulations in regard to asbestos training for non licensed asbestos work. This health and safety training course contains all of the elements specified in EM2 of the Asbestos Essentials except for your emergency procedures and task specific procedures. If you book a closed course, just for your employees, the course content can be modified to include your emergency and task specific procedures. Open courses are available at our training centre in Dukinfield, Tameside near Manchester.
