Why should I study asbestos awareness?

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous substance that can be present in any building or structure that was built or refurbished up to the year 2000. Therefore, all workers who may come in to contact with asbestos or asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) must be trained so that they can stay safe. This Asbestos Awareness online training course raises awareness of the dangers from asbestos and the practical steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of exposure.

This Asbestos Awareness course covers what asbestos is, the main types of asbestos encountered in the UK, current legislation (The Control of Asbestos Regulations – CAR 2012), how asbestos causes harm, where asbestos may be found, how to reduce the risk and what to do in an emergency.
