Hurry!! Hurry!! And book a place on the second of our October Asbestos Awareness training sessions. The session is scheduled for Tuesday, 9th October 2012 at 9.00 a.m. at Bury Business Centre, Kay Street, Bury, BL9 6BU.
The Control of Asbestos 2012 regulations state that Asbestos Awareness 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) do not hesitate in prosecuting and fining employers whom fail to ensure adequate training is provided as such ignorance increases the risk of asbestos fibre inhalation.
Our three hour Asbestos Awareness training course educates workers on the history of asbestos, what asbestos looks like and, when and how it was used in building. The attendee would be taught how to identify asbestos and the correct procedures 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.
The cost of the training session is a mere £55 plus VAT per person and we currently have offer respiratory mask face fitting service, if booked in conjunction with one of our courses, for a discounted £25 per person plus VAT. Our training sessions are held by fully qualified and time-served surveyors whom deliver the class as a professional, yet friendly, oral presentation with power point slides and written material. The candidates are presented with a certificate and we also provide yearly refresher training session.
In addition to holding the described training at our premises we also can deliver at your premises or elected place throughout the UK. We also provide Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials training and various asbestos related services such as sample analysis, surveying and, consultancy and advice.
