Course description

Asbestos Awareness Training

This IATP Approved Asbestos Awareness training was designed for workers who may potentially come into contact with asbestos whilst at work. The course informs the user of what asbestos is, where it might be found, and what it’s used for; and why it’s dangerous.

In 2018 there were 2,446 mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposures (HSE). Mesothelioma is a type of cancer usually caused by being exposed to asbestos fibres and them breathing in. 

Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their staff know where asbestos and related materials are likely to be found, how to avoid the risk of exposure and to provide the necessary PPE to keep the worker safe.

This course is available in 34 Languages.
