Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos Awareness Training

It’s now a requirement of the HSE that anyone involved in building refurbishment where their work will disturb the fabric of the building, completes asbestos awareness training.

Our asbestos awareness training course is designed to surpass the HSE’s requirements concentrating on real life applications of the course contents and how to stay safe.

Our asbestos trainers have over 15 years of experience in dealing with asbestos in a wide variety of situations, giving you the best practical advice that only comes from real life experience.

We’ve provided asbestos awareness training to companies of all sizes from individual specialists to blue chips organizations.

Our asbestos awareness training courses are always tailored to suit your needs as both a business and an individual.

Asbestos courses can be held at either our own dedicated training facility or onsite at your location.

Course sizes vary, although we generally like to keep them below 15.

We hold regular monthly courses that anyone can attend as well as being able to offer courses just for you and your employees.

Asbestos awareness training courses generally take around 3 hours (half day course) depending of the number of delegates.

Delegates can also complete works with non licensed asbestos training on the same day, making it a full day course.

Upon completion of the course, each delegate will be issued with a certificate that’s valid for 12 months as per the HSE guidance.
