Asbestos is a category one human carcinogen and remains the single biggest cause of work related deaths in the UK, standing at approximately 4000 deaths each year.
Asbestos Awareness training highlights the health risks presented by asbestos, in particular its implications for the respiratory system. Disease caused by exposure to asbestos in industrial processes or installation of asbestos products can take decades to develop before any symptoms can be observed.
Asbestos Awareness courses enable candidates to keep themselves and those around them safe by early identification of an asbestos hazard. Asbestos Awareness training courses will not certify individuals to handle asbestos material or products; instead they will gain an understanding of proper procedure in the instance that asbestos is found so that the hazard can be controlled and removed.
Asbestos Awareness training should be undertaken by those responsible for the building, repair and maintenance of commercial and private properties to reduce over time the impact on health of this evidently hazardous substance.
Completion of an Asbestos Awareness course is a mandatory requirement on many working sites in the UK due to the high volume of asbestos that was used in construction up until 1999 when the hazardous material was banned.
