Asbestos Awareness Training
Asbestos First run regular courses, that can be booked as
an individual or a group, from our training room in
Medway. The next course is Friday 29th May 2015.
Alternatively training can be carried out at our client's
premises and in some circumstances this can make the training more
relevant to the environment that they are working in.
Asbestos awareness training is legally required for anyone who
may be exposed to asbestos containing materials during their
working activities and those that supervise their work activities.
The training is also useful for anyone requiring a better
understanding of the basic elements of asbestos in buildings and is
a good "stepping stone" to more in-depth courses.
At the end of the course employees should have a better
- Duty holders responsibilities
- Emergency procedures
- Health effects of asbestos
- Types of asbestos containing materials (ACMs)
- Asbestos in buildings
- The role of the asbestos removal company
- Managing asbestos
Over the years, we have found that providing information about
Asbestos and the way it needs to be managed puts everyone's mind at
rest. Being left in the dark can leave too much opportunity for
hearsay and scare mongering.
If this is something that you feel would be of benefit, please
to discuss any requirements that you may have.
