Asbestos Training Solutions
We provide cost effective training solutions to assist organisations in meeting their legal duties, and also their desire to improve their businesses by developing the skills and knowledge of their most important asset — their people.
We offer a range of set courses, all of which are delivered in York, Derby or at your workplace. Alternatively, we can work with your organisation to develop bespoke courses.
The Eurosafe UK Group is now able to offer online training covering 18 health and safety related topics. In order to meet the requirements of our clients we are now delivering cost-effective training modules that can be accessed and paid for the following link. Contractors, clients and consultants now have the option to no longer travel to our training venues, and they can even undertake the online training on evenings and at weekends. All courses are accredited and once completed individual certificates of attendance will be available to download.
Because of the legal requirement for initial training, and also regular refresher training, Asbestos Awareness is the most popular classroom based module that we deliver. However with our online option we can now help to considerably reduce training costs and associated downtime. Other popular modules include Work at Height, Confined Spaces, Fire Safety and COSHH.
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.
Duration: 1 Day
Target Group: Persons requiring this type of training would include those whose work will knowingly disturb ACMs, such as maintenance workers and their supervisors; and those who carry out asbestos sampling and analysis. It should be given in addition to the asbestos awareness training and broadly covers content from Asbestos Essentials HSG 210. Upon completion of the course suitably insured construction contractors can work in a minor way with some lower risk ACMs.
Duration: 1 day
Target Group: With the introduction of HSG 264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide, a key legal requirement is the duty to designate an Appointed Person to manage asbestos issues within a clients property portfolio. This training is designed to prepare an individual who is appointed to this new role. The course provides both regulatory and legal advise as well as practical solutions to managing asbestos within the property portfolio effectively and safely.
Training needs analysis is the process of identifying the gap between employee skills and the actual training required to be undertaken. It is the first stage in the training process and involves a procedure to determine whether training will address the identified skills needed to do the job or role.
