Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons, and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos-containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction, and asbestos awareness training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to any level of asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
As well as informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver content to help them recognise asbestos-containing materials, make them aware of where it was used, it will include steps they can take to minimise the risks, and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos. Each asbestos training module from this course is rounded off with several multiple-choice questions. All candidates are required to get 100% on these tests to pass the course and gain an asbestos awareness certificate. They have the opportunity to review all the answers at the end of each module before final submission and will be given 3 attempts to achieve the required result.
The online Asbestos Awareness course is designed for anyone who may come into contact with asbestos in their work. Most commonly, that includes builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and other building-related and maintenance trades. This course is for anyone who needs the appropriate amount of asbestos awareness and certification to continue in their job.
Our Asbestos Awareness Online Course will take 65 minutes (Note: This is based on the amount of video content shown and is rounded off. It does not account in any way for loading time or thinking time on the questions).
Our Asbestos training course will cost £20 +vat.
