Armco are holding an Asbestos Awareness and Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) training session at Bury Business, Centre, Kay Street, Bury, Greater Manchester on Friday, 22nd February 2013.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) legally binds employers to comply with Regulation 10, which stipulates that workers whom work on building built prior to the year 2000 must be Asbestos Aware. Armco’s Asbestos Awareness course educates workers on the history of asbestos, what asbestos looks like and, when and how asbestos was used in building. The attendee would be taught how it identify asbestos and the correct procedure to follow to deal with asbestos correctly. The cost is £65 per person plus VAT.
The Works with Non-Licensed ACM’s training is made up of the ½ day Asbestos Awareness, followed by a half day session covering non-licensed ACM’s. Various asbestos products, such as asbestos cement, floor tiles and texture coating have been deemed low risk by the HSE and therefore any remedial works do not require a licensed contractor. These materials are required to be removed/remediated by a competent contractor which attendance on this course ensures. The cost is £175 per person plus VAT.

The training is provided by fully qualified and friendly professionals in the form of an oral presentation with power point slides and printed handouts.
