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 UK asbestos 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.
