Course Introduction

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.

Course Content

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.

Who should take this course?

The online Asbestos Awareness training can be used as part of an induction process, or as a refresher for existing staff. Being aware of the risks of asbestos and the need to check asbestos locations is useful for almost any employee working in a building where there is asbestos.

Legal Requirements

  • The EssentialSkillz online Asbestos Awareness training is intended to provide asbestos awareness training as per paragraphs 232 and 233 of the approved Code of Practice and guidance (ACOP) to the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, L143. As stated in para 236 of L143: “Asbestos awareness will not prepare employees or self-employed contractors to carry out work with ACMs. Awareness training is only intended to help employees avoid carrying out work that will disturb asbestos or ACMs.”
  • The EssentialSkillz Asbestos Awareness training therefore provides a basic level of awareness to workers who might otherwise disturb asbestos in the course of their work. This includes maintenance staff, decorators, plumbers, electricians and installers. Other staff might also find it useful – for example, where office or retail staff might be tempted to attach a poster to a wall with drawing pins, or to hang Christmas decorations to a ceiling with sticky tape. Being aware of the risks of asbestos and the need to check asbestos locations is useful for almost any employee working in a building where there is asbestos.
  • 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.
  • The Asbestos Awareness training is not sufficient for those carrying out deliberate removal or remediation of asbestos as part of their work.
