Asbestos awareness training is essential for employees whose work may expose them to asbestos. Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012  puts a requirement on employers to ensure that their staff have undergone suitable asbestos awareness training so that they are aware of the potential dangers they may face and also the procedures they must follow in the event they are working in the vicinity of asbestos containing materials (ACMs).


Those that are deemed to be at risk from asbestos exposure and therefore the groups most requiring asbestos awareness training include:

Electricians, Plumbers & Gas Fitters
Painters & Decorators
Construction & Demolition Workers
Joiners, Plasterers
Computing & Telecommunications Engineers
Heating & Ventilation Engineers
Architects & Building Surveyors
Fire & Burglar Alarm Installers


Our asbestos awareness training includes information on the following:

The properties of asbestos and its effects on health. (with attention is paid to the increased chance of lung cancer to those workers who smoke).

The types uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant.

The general procedures to be followed when dealing with an emergency in the event of the uncontrolled release of asbestos dust in the workplace.

How to avoid the risks from asbestos


Asbestos awareness training comprises written and oral presentations with an option for practical sessions if required. Courses can be tailored to each and every organisation and its requirements which allows us to design a course to exactly match your site and employee's needs
