UKATA training from ACT
It is estimated that over two million work places contain asbestos, which remains the single biggest cause of work related deaths in the UK.
UKATA sets standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards.
It is legal requirement that all who may come across asbestos in their day to day work have been provided with asbestos awareness training. If they will intentionally work on asbestos they must have had appropriate training specific to the tasks they will undertake.
Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos awareness training. UKATA provides a quality standard for that training.
