Description

All workers who are likely to disturb asbestos containing materials during their normal work should be trained so that they can work safely. This Asbestos Awareness plus course is suitable for anyone who may be exposed to asbestos as part of their work so that they fully understand the dangers and minimize airborne fibers during the removal of small amounts of bonded asbestos products. This includes, but is not limited to, professions such as:

  • Heating and ventilation engineers
  • Demolition workers
  • Carpenters, joiners and construction workers
  • Plumbers
  • Roofing contractors
  • Painters, decorators and plasterers
  • Fire and burglar alarm installers
  • Shop fitters
  • Gas fitters
  • Computer installers and telecommunications engineers
  • General maintenance staff
  • Cable layers and electricians

Note that any workers who plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb asbestos require a higher level of training, (Class A or Class B).
