Asbestos Awareness Online Course and Certificate

Anybody who works on the fabric of a building, built or refurbished before 2000, could potentially be exposed to asbestos. The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires anyone who is likely to be exposed to or disturb asbestos at work to undertake asbestos awareness training.

This is a general awareness course and is ideal for all trades people and anyone who has responsibility for the management and upkeep of buildings.

The course is IATP accredited and meets the training and awareness requirements of relevant legislation and regulations including The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 regulation 10 sections 232 to 235, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. It also meets the requirements of CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine, Exor, SMAS and other SSIP registrations plus HSE safety training requirements.
