Asbestos Awareness Training Advice


Guide to asbestos information and training courses

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 recommends the need for adequate asbestos awareness training provisions for employees who come into contact with asbestos containing materials (ACM) in the course of their work. The recommendation urges that staff should not only be able to identify ACMs but should be equipped with sufficient training covering all aspects of asbestos awareness. The importance for adequate training is even greater today with insurers insisting that all operatives and sub-contractors must possess documentary evidence of having attended an asbestos training course by an approved facilitator.

It is beholden upon employers and duty holders of non-domestic public buildings to ensure that their staff are sufficiently provided with asbestos information and related health and safety issues, to the extent that they are able to understand asbestos reports. There are asbestos training courses which cover workplace protective wear. Other asbestos inspection training courses teach staff how to recognise the various types of asbestos containing materials.

There are companies with established asbestos awareness training courses incorporating videos and other training aids, which address all the recommended highlights in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 directive; ideal not only for on-site workers but also for health and safety personnel.

These training consultants offer a flexible approach for employers seeking to have their staff undertake asbestos inspection training; and can deliver their courses in employers' offices and on-site premises.

Certificates of attendance are awarded at the end of courses and such is the standing of these courses today that sub-contractors are increasingly required to acquire a certificate of attendance as proof of having undergone an asbestos awareness training course.
