Employers are required, by Section 10 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, to ensure that all those whom carry out any works or installation on properties built before the year 2000 must receive adequate Asbestos Awareness training. Armco have scheduled their next Asbestos Awareness and Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) training session for Tuesday, 2nd October 2012 at Bury Business Centre, Kay Street, Bury, BL9 6BU.
Our three hour Asbestos Awareness training course educates workers on the history of asbestos, what is looks like and, when and how it was used in building. The attendee would be taught how it identify asbestos and the correct procedure to follow to deal with asbestos correctly. This ensures that they safeguard themselves, other workers, customers and the general public from the inhalation of asbestos fibres, which can potentially lead to life threatening respiratory disease. All this for only £55 per person plus VAT.
In addition, we are holding Works with Non-Licensed ACM’s training is made up of the ½ day Asbestos Awareness followed by a ½ day session covering non-licensed ACM’s. Various asbestos products are considered low risk and therefore non-licensed, such as asbestos cement, floor tiles and texture coating. Such materials have been deemed low risk by the HSE and therefore any remedial works do not require a license. The materials still harbor some risk and therefore those undertaking such remedial works must be trained in working with such ACM’s. The cost of the course is a competitive £165 per person plus VAT.
The courses are delivered as an oral presentation with power point slides and written material. The training is provided by fully qualified, time served and friendly professionals. The candidates are presented with a certificate we also provide yearly refresher training session. We also provide a respiratory mask quantative face fitting service.
