About the Training

    Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. It was widely used by the construction industry, up until the year 2000, when it was banned.
    It can be found in lagging which is easy to identify, but is also in boarding, doors, floor tiles etc which is not easy to identify.
    Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos.

    Who is this training for?

    The Control of Asbestos Regulations apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons and duty holders and covers all work where asbestos containing materials could be found. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes persons who work in maintenance, facilities and handy persons or anybody who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos containing materials (ACM).
