Asbestos Awareness Training

Duration: 4 hours

Target Group: Asbestos awareness training is required to be given to employees whose work could foreseeably expose them to asbestos. In particular, it should be given to all demolition workers and those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades where it is foreseeable that their work will disturb the fabric of the building because ACMs may become exposed during their work.

Aims: This training covers the requirements of Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 – Regulation 10 – ACOP 126.

Course Content: This training covers the following topics in appropriate details, by means of both written and oral presentation, and by demonstration:

  • the properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of lung cancer for asbestos workers who smoke;
  • the types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant;
  • the general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency, for example an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace; and
  • how to avoid the risks from asbestos, for example for building work, no employee should carry out work which disturbs the fabric of a building unless the employer has confirmed that ACMs are not present.

Asbestos Awareness Refresher

The aim of the training is to refresh the knowledge of attendees who have attended an asbestos awareness course. The Course Target Group, Aims and Content are the same as above, however, the Duration is approx. 2 hours.
