Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR) apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons and duty holders. The regulations cover all work with asbestos containing materials.
Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instructions 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.
Our asbestos awareness training course is for the prevention of asbestos disturbance, to take the necessary precautions before works commence and to stop work if there is doubt about any material found within the work area.
Please note this course does not enable you work with or remove asbestos.
