Asbestos Awareness Online Training

Price£15.00 + VAT


The Safety Group Asbestos Awareness online training provides asbestos training as per paragraphs 232 and 233 of the approved Code of Practice and guidance (ACOP) to the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, L143 (2013). The intent of the course is not to train people to work with asbestos or asbestos containing materials, but to help them to avoid work that would disturb asbestos.

The Asbestos Awareness course online explains what asbestos is, why it was so widely used, and the dangers of being exposed to it. The overall process of asbestos management is explained, from producing a management plan and arranging an asbestos survey, to interpreting material and priority scores and determining how to protect people.

Use of asbestos and likely locations are described and illustrated, to help workers identify tasks that they should not proceed with until they have checked with someone that asbestos will not be disturbed. Actions to be taken if a worker believes that asbestos has been disturbed are outlined, although this must be reinforced with information about local arrangements.

Questions and interactive exercises are used to prompt the user to think about how to apply the lessons learnt in the course. Like all Safety Group courses, this online Asbestos Awareness training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
