Those who work on buildings built before the year 2000 need asbestos awareness training so that they know how to avoid the risks of exposure of Asbestos Containing Materials. The asbestos awareness training should be given to employees whose work could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building.

Workers who are in the refurbishment, maintenance, and allied trades need to take this course due to the high likelihood of being exposed to ACMs during their works. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Demolition workers
  • Construction workers
  • General maintenance staff
  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • Gas fitters
  • Painters and decorators
  • Joiners
  • Shop fitters
  • Plasterers
  • Roofers
  • Heating and ventilation engineers
  • Telecommunication engineers
  • Computer and data installers
  • Fire and burglar alarm installers
  • Architects, building surveyors and other such professionals

Asbestos awareness will not prepare employees or self-employed contractors to carry out work with ACMs. Awareness training is only intended to help employees avoid carrying out work that will disturb asbestos or ACMs.

Aims of asbestos awareness course

  • Properties of asbestos
  • Health effects and smoking
  • Common Products
  • Asbestos Facts
  • Asbestos Regulations
  • Additional Legislation
  • The use of asbestos surveys

If work is planned that will disturb ACMs, further information, instruction and training appropriate to the work being done will be needed.

This course is a prerequisite of our CAT B Working with Non-Licensed Asbestos course, therefore, if you work with non-licensed asbestos or are likely to disturb ACM’s, you must take this course then click here to book your place on our CAT B course.
