Asbestos Awareness Training
Asbestos Awareness training is accredited by UKATA and ensures that delegates are aware of the risks associated with asbestos and how they can stay safe when working in an area where it may be found. They will be able to identify where asbestos may be by undertaking asbestos surveys in line with HSE guidelines so that the likelihood of exposure is reduced. The training is designed for staff at any level (aged 16+) whose working role may lead to their exposure to asbestos, for example, those working on buildings.
