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 March 2013.
Asbestos Awareness training is mandatory for any worker whom is likely to uncover asbestos in their work tasks, specifically working on houses built before the year 2000 Regulation 10 of The Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012). The cost of this course is £65 per person plus VAT.
We are also offering that day, Works with Non-Licensed ACM’s training which is made up of the ½ day Asbestos Awareness, followed by a half day session covering remedial works and removals of non-licensed ACM’s. This allows delegates to be considered competent in the removal/remediation of these low risk material’s. The cost of this is £175 per person plus VAT.
We also offer a respiratory half mask face fitting service for £35 per person plus VAT, which is reduced to £25 per person plus VAT when booked in conjunction with one of the above referenced courses. As opposed to the subjective qualitative technique of face fitting which some companies offer, we only use the quantative method which provides an objective assessment of facial fit and provides a direct numerical result called a fit factor. The implementation of thee face fits ensures that you are operating in line with current legislation to protect your staff from the inhalation of potentially harmful toxins (The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) 2005).
