Who is this course for?
An awareness level knowledge of asbestos is very important for anyone self-employed, working as a contractor, or anyone involved in maintenance or refurbishment of buildings.
Asbestos can be found in any property built before it was banned in 1999, and any professional who makes alterations to buildings of this age should be aware of asbestos and the serious risks that it poses to health. Additionally, some buildings refurbished after the ban may also include asbestos containing building materials.
An awareness of where you can commonly find asbestos and what to look out for can keep you safe and reduce your risk of developing mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Some construction companies require employees to hold a valid UKATA Asbestos Awareness certificate in order to enter sites and carry out work.
