In accordance with the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulation (CAR2012) mandatory asbestos awareness training is required to be given to all employees whose work could expose them to asbestos.
We run Asbestos Awareness courses at nominated venues but, we're also able to come to your premises and to train your employees on site.
Our courses are run by experienced staff who will be able to tailor the course syllabus to the nature of your business and your employees needs.
The Asbestos Awareness Training lasts for half a day with a short test at the end. A certificate will be issued on completion of the course. Annual refresher training is required by the HSE and full course resit every two years.
We're often asked "who needs this training", here's just a few of the trades and professions as recommended by the Health and Safety Executive:

We will complete a full survey to HSG264 as updated February 2010 standard. All of our asbestos consultants are fully trained in order to carry out full asbestos surveys.
Samples are analysed at our UKAS accredited laboratories in order to give you accurate results from the asbestos survey which our asbestos consultants have conducted. Your asbestos consultant will double bag and label all asbestos samples.
The type location and condition is assessed so that full asbestos training can be delivered.
A complete and detailed register is compiled.
Recommendations are made for any remedial work and inspection frequency.
The immediate reaction people have when our asbestos surveys find traces is that asbestos must be removed. This is not the case there are many different ways to deal with asbestos to reduce the risk to yourself and your employees.
Our asbestos surveyor will explain in detail how asbestos training, monitoring and management can deal with any asbestos found in your premises.
This is where the planning and monitoring of the register applies.
On completion you will be in possession of an asbestos survey report that includes a management plan with details of appropriate action required.
We will be happy to do a free assessment of your premises and advise you on what needs to be done for you to fully comply with the regulations.
