It is a well-known fact that asbestos exposure is highly toxic, with removal being a highly specialised process involving trained individuals. But for anybody working within the construction industry, training in asbestos awareness remains incredibly important. If you are working on buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000, asbestos could be present at any point of the process. It is therefore a legal obligation to undertake a formal asbestos awareness course, so that you know how to avoid the risks.
Who is Asbestos Awareness Training for?
At Academe Training Solutions, we provide Asbestos Awareness Training in Stoke-on-Trent, aimed at all individuals whose work could potentially disturb the fabric of a building – including those working as architects, surveyors, and site supervisors. In particular, it is essential that those working within the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades should be well-informed through certified training, as they are more likely to become exposed during their work.
Legal Obligation for Companies
According to Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, there is a legal obligation for employers in the UK to ensure that all staff likely to come into contact with asbestos should receive training. This obligation is also enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Companies failing to provide Asbestos Awareness training for their employees face heavy fines in the event that any accidents should happen on-site.
