Overview

Asbestos Awareness courses have become common place in the last decade, mainly due to the amount of asbestos still contained in building across the U.K and the entire world. While asbestos can be safe as long as it is undisturbed, any maintenance work in an area containing asbestos can lead to life-ending problems for the workers in the future. This course will help all workers and staff to be mindful of the different types of asbestos and the inherent dangers they pose.
