Course description

Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material that can cause serious respiratory health issues when exposed to large amounts of it. If you work in construction, it’s important to know what precautions to take should you ever be working in an environment where you could be breathing in its fibres. This Asbestos Awareness (Category A) Training Course will help you to familiarise with the safety procedures you need to follow, in order to protect your health in the workplace. You’ll learn about the dangers of working with asbestos and how to comply with the law, to ensure you and your colleagues are 100% safe. Please note that construction workers that plan to carry out work that may disturb asbestos will be required to take the Category B or C courses, in addition to this introductory course.
