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.

Who needs asbestos awareness training?
Asbestos is one of the most dangerous building materials ever used and it's vital that proper 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.
When is asbestos training required?
Asbestos awareness training 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 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.
