Asbestos was a material that was commonly used in years gone by in building and construction. By the year 2000, it was recognised to be dangerous.

If you want to further your understanding of asbestos and how to use it in your line of work safely, Asbestos Awareness will teach you the risks of working with asbestos and the precautionary measures you can take to prevent getting sick from it.

You will understand the dangers of asbestos and take practical steps to minimise the risk of exposure. This is aRoSPA & IATP certified course will demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate across the building and construction industries.
