Asbestos Awareness

RoSPA & IATP Approved

Course Description

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used.

Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) applies to employers, employees, self-employed persons, and duty holders and covers all work with asbestos-containing materials. 

Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction, and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. 

This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
