EssentialSkillz Asbestos Awareness Training provides asbestos training in line with 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 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.
Although asbestos management is outlined, this course is not a substitute for a full P405 Management of Asbestos in Buildings course, although it would provide a useful preparation for a manager attending such a course.
