The Control of Asbestos Regulations state that asbestos training is mandatory for anyone who is involved with or affected by disturbing the fabric of a building in their works tasks. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) take this very seriously and if you navigate the other stories in this news feed you will see that they prosecute and fine those failing to provide this.
The cost of the fine far outweighs the mere £55 per person plus VAT which we charge for you to attend our Asbestos Awareness training. We have scheduled our next Asbestos Awareness training for Friday, 27th July 2012 right here in the conference room at Bury Business Centre, Kay Street, Bury, BL9 6BU. We also are holding that day Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials training, which is £165 plus VAT per person.
If you are employed 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;
• Roofing contractors;
• Painters and decorators;
• Construction workers;
• Fire and burglar alarm installers;
• Shop fitters;
• Gas fitters;
• Computer installers;
• General maintenance staff eg caretakers;
• Telecommunications engineers;
• Building surveyors;
• Cable layers;
• Heating and Ventilation Engineers.
In addition to the training outline above we also provide respiratory mask face fitting service and if booked in conjunction with one of our courses you will receive this for a discounted £25 per person plus VAT. Armco’s training sessions are held by fully qualified and time-served surveyors whom deliver the class as an oral presentation with power point slides and written material.
