Asbestos Awareness FAQs

Asbestos is one of the most dangerous building materials ever used and it’s vital that proper online asbestos awareness training is given to those who are at risk of coming into contact with it. The training is important because, prior to the year 2000, asbestos was widely utilised by the construction industry for roofing, flooring, and for insulating homes and office blocks. Before the subsequent change in asbestos regulations its (seemingly wondrous) fire-proof properties, asbestos was also sprayed onto people’s ceilings and walls to protect them from harm – however, we now understand just how dangerous this practice was, and the use of asbestos has since been banned in the UK (and either banned or restricted in many other countries too).

Unfortunately, thousands of people still fall ill every year due to exposure to asbestos, the fibres of which can cause respiratory diseases such as lung cancer, pleurisy, and scarring of the lining of the lungs. However, with a proper asbestos awareness course, those most at risk – people like carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters, shop fitters, demolition workers and builders – can avoid contact with this life-threatening substance.

Our asbestos awareness online course helps workers identify where they might come across asbestos, what the risks of finding asbestos are, and what to do if asbestos is either suspected or present in the workplace. Understanding and remembering these basic instructions is vital for workers at risk of encountering asbestos since disturbing this material can be fatal. That’s why we recommend that online asbestos awareness training be refreshed annually for all employees at risk of encountering it.

Refreshing and reinforcing asbestos awareness training is important because asbestos is not easily identified on-site, and it does not cause any immediate reaction upon exposure. This means that, during a busy day’s work, it could be easy to drop your guard as to the risks of asbestos and the long-term health damage it can cause. With annual reminders about how to spot asbestos, however, and by keeping the dangers of asbestos fresh in your workers’ minds, awareness can be kept to a safe level.

Asbestos Awareness Training

Our Asbestos Awareness online course meets the legal requirements for employee online asbestos training. Throughout the course, learners are guided through what asbestos is and why it is so dangerous; where it might be found; what the legal requirements are to manage asbestos if it is found; and what to do if asbestos materials are disturbed or damaged.

Our online asbestos training also includes information about different types of surveys, registers, and management plans, so that learners understand the measures that are in place now for identifying and assessing asbestos wherever and whenever it is suspected to be present.

As with all of our courses, the content is delivered in a responsive format meaning that the course can be taken on smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. Our courses are designed to create maximum engagement with the learner, and delivered in such a way that gives learners the best opportunity to retain as much knowledge as possible.

We utilise the latest techniques in eLearning across our range of courses including the use of gamification, challenges, quizzes and real-life case studies to bring learning to life using relevant examples.

Our Asbestos Awareness online course is available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation’s requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
