Asbestos Training

Asbestos Training

Workers and supervisors must be able to recognise asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and know what to do if they come across them in order to protect themselves and others.

Attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing and consolidating skills learnt during training, on-the-job learning, instruction and assessment.

It is important that the level of information, instruction and training is appropriate for the work and the roles undertaken by each worker (and supervisor).

Awareness Course

Asbestos awareness is intended to give workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos during any normal work which could disturb the fabric of a building or other item which might contain asbestos.

It will not prepare workers, or self-employed contractors, to carry out work with asbestos-containing materials.

If a worker is planning to carry out work that will disturb ACMs, further information, instruction and training will be needed. (Source HSE.gov.uk)
