Asbestos Awareness Cat A

Asbestos is a hazardous substance; every year over 5,000 people die from asbestos related diseases, such as lung cancer. Anyone likely to disturb or damage asbestos containing materials must be aware of the dangers and know what procedures to follow.

Our (category A) asbestos awareness online training will help you to understand where asbestos can be found, the risks associated with it and how to reduce the risk of asbestos fibres being released. If you plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb or damage asbestos, you will require a higher level of training (category B or C).

1. Asbestos – The basics Lesson

2. Legislation and responsibilities

3. How to complete a risk assessment

4. Asbestos and risk reduction measures

This course is accredited by IATP – The Independent Asbestos Training Providers website only lists asbestos training providers that have submitted documentary evidence confirming their compliance with the regulations, including independent external audits where necessary. The details of these audits are included with the listings, for our clients to check should they so wish.
