While asbestos is no longer used in construction, its dangers for many people remains real, especially for construction workers. This hidden hazard can pose serious health risks to unsuspecting workers who accidentally become exposed to its fibres. This is why UKATA asbestos awareness training with Acadame is such a crucial protective measure for anyone working in environments where asbestos might be present.

This training is particularly valuable for supervisors and workers who regularly work on buildings constructed before the year 2000. This is when asbestos use was widespread. Professions this may be common in includes roles such as demolition workers, electricians, plumbers, and general maintenance personnel.

This training equips you with the knowledge and tools to identify and avoid asbestos, safeguarding yourself and your colleagues. In the course you’ll learn more about asbestos, its properties, health effects (including the increased risk for smokers), and how to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) commonly found in buildings. This enables you to make informed decisions and handle potential hazards safely.

By understanding how asbestos fibres are released and effective risk reduction techniques, you can significantly reduce your chances of exposure and the associated health hazards like lung cancer and mesothelioma. This training arms you with the knowledge to minimise risks, greatly enhancing your workplace safety.

Regulations like the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) mandate asbestos awareness training for certain workers. Completing a UKATA-approved course ensures your compliance, minimising legal risks for both you and your employer.
