BSG is a registered member of IATP (Independent Asbestos Training Providers)
The Asbestos Awareness course is aimed at operatives whose work could foreseeably expose them to asbestos, such as those who work in the maintenance and demolition industries, refurbishment and allied trades where their work might foreseeably disturb the fabric of the building, thus exposing Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).
The Asbestos Awareness course enables employers to meet their legal requirements under Regulation 10, of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
This course is aimed at making the candidates aware of the dangers associated with unknowingly coming into contact with asbestos. It does NOT train you to work with asbestos containing materials.
The course will cover:
• The properties and types of asbestos and their effects on health and safety, including the increased risk of lung cancer for those that smoke.
• The uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACM’s in building and plant.
• The general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency such as the uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace.
• How to avoid risks from asbestos.
