Asbestos awareness key for all businesses

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:26

Exposure to asbestos is the single highest cause of work-related deaths in the UK. Commonly used in buildings between the 1950s and the 1990s for insulation and fire-proofing, asbestos fibres can be fatal if inhaled.

It's for this reason that every business has responsibilities under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to protect employees from the risk of contact with asbestos.

In the last week a construction company was fined £50,000 and an unlicensed builder received a jail term for exposing workers to asbestos.

As well as risking fines and prison sentences, any business failing to adhere to the regulations may lead to serious illness and death.

If your employees, or any employees or contractors that they supervise, are liable to be exposed to asbestos then they must be given adequate information, instruction and training to reduce the risk of asbestos.

Our Asbestos Management eLearning course is designed to meet this need, and is available on-demand for staff who are liable to be exposed to asbestos, and their supervisors.
