Online Asbestos Awareness Training

Online Asbestos Awareness Training

To help the learner to recognise asbestos materials, to understand the risks involved in working with asbestos and provide them with an introduction to the HSE ‘good practice’ guidelines for any work involving asbestos.

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring minerals which were used in many aspects of the building trade in the past. If disturbed, the fibres within asbestos can be released into the air and inhaled by people in the area. Breathing in air containing asbestos fibres can lead to asbestos-related diseases (mainly cancers of the chest and lungs). These diseases will not occur immediately and can take from 15 – 60 years to develop. It is vital to provide training for people working on any of your company premises, who are likely to encounter or disturb asbestos containing materials. Recognise asbestos materials and understand the risks involved in working with asbestos – explore the online asbestos awareness course from EazySAFE.
