WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?
Asbestos Awareness Training is mandatory for all employees and contractors who are likely to come into contact with asbestos. Typically, workers who are likely to intefere with the fabric of a building are likely to come into contact with asbestos.
It is essential that anyone who comes into contact with asbestos knows what it is, what it does to you and how to avoid disturbing it.
Whatever your role in the construction industry, we'll ensure the course is suitable, useful and rewarding.
