Asbestos is an extremely hazardous substance that can cause serious ill-health to anyone who disturbs or damages it. For this reason, all workers who may come across asbestos or asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) must be trained so that they can work safely. This includes work with potential ACMs, accidental discovery of asbestos, and accidental damage to asbestos and ACMs.
This Asbestos Awareness course provides a comprehensive introduction to the dangers of working with asbestos and helps employers to comply with the law by ensuring that their workers are appropriately trained in order to work safely.
Note: the information covered in this course is presented at an awareness level for anyone who needs to understand what asbestos is and what is generally required in law.
It does not cover the legal requirements to carry out work with asbestos, because such work requires practical training additional to this awareness course.
