Armco Asbestos Consultants are holding their monthly Asbestos Awareness and Non-Licensed Works with Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) Training here at Bury Business Centre on Friday, 15th June 2012.
As an employer you are required to ensure that any employees who are likely to come into contact with ACM’s have been trained to be asbestos aware. This is very important as approximate 4000 asbestos related deaths per year, 40 tradesman every week die from asbestos related diseases. The construction and maintenance sector is at the highest risk.
If you work in any of the following occupations, and are working on a building built or refurbished before 2000, you may come in to contact with asbestos: Demolition workers; Carpenters and joiners; Plumbers; Roofing contractors; Painters and decorators; Plasterers; Construction workers; Fire and burglar alarm installers; Shop fitters; Gas fitters; Computer installers; General maintenance staff e.g. caretakers; Telecommunications engineers; Building surveyors; Cable layers; Electricians; Heating and Ventilation Engineers.
We also offer Work with Non-Licensed ACM’s training which comprises of Asbestos Awareness in the morning and procedures of the repair and removal of ACM’s deemed to be non-licensed by the HSE. In addition, we provide a Respiratory Mask Face Fitting service, to ensure you are protected from the inhalation of asbestos and other hazardous substances.
Finally, should you have more than approximately five employees requiring training it can be cheaper if we can come to your premises or a location you elect and implement the training at your convenience.
