Asbestos Awareness for Managers

Aim of the course

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous substance that can cause serious ill-health issues to anyone who disturbs it. The effects of the asbestos fibres may not appear until years after the initial inhalation, however, Asbestosis (the disease that occurs from inhaling disturbed asbestos) is responsible for around 4000 deaths a year.
