Armco’s ‘Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials’ Training
Armco Asbestos Consultants offers asbestos related training courses, including Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM's) Training which enables employees to carry out asbestos remedial works saving your company money on sub-contractors.
Armco Asbestos Consultants are leaders in the provision of a high standard of various asbestos related training courses at a competitive price, held either on site at companies properties or at our monthly training sessions held in Bury. We offer Asbestos Awareness and Works With Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) Training, Refreshers Courses and Face Fit Testing.
The Works With Non-Licensed ACM’s training is made up of the a half days session highlighting the dangers of asbestos, teaching awareness and necessary procedures once asbestos is identified and then this followed by a half days session covering non-licensed ACM’s. This training is applicable to those whose work will knowingly disturb asbestos containing materials.
The points covered include how to make suitable and sufficient assessments of the risk of exposure to asbestos; the control limit, the appropriate choice and use of respiratory and personal protective equipment, decontamination procedures, work which requires an HSE license, emergency procedures and waste handling procedures. This training would enable those trained to undertake the work outlined in the HSE publication “Asbestos Essentials” as follows:
Building and dismantling a mini-enclosure;
Using a Class H vacuum;
Cleaner for asbestos;
Wetting asbestos materials;
Using rags to clean surfaces and equipment contaminated with asbestos;
Disposal of asbestos waste;
Statement of cleanliness after textured coating removals.
Once an employee is trained to this standard they would be considered a competent contractor and therefore could undertake remedial works with non-licensed materials, thus saving your company money as no sub-contractors would need to be brought in for such works.
Armco’s training sessions are held by fully qualified and time-served surveyors/removers whom deliver the class as an oral presentation with power point slides and written material. The candidates are presented with a certificate which lasts a year and Armco also provides the necessary yearly refresher training session.
The courses can be held at companies properties and we also hold monthly training session at our offices at Bury Business Centre, Kay Street, Bury, BL9 6BU. The next session is booked for Friday, 25th November 2011. Please contact the office for a list of our competitive prices and availability on 0161 763 3727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
