Compliance

 

Why is this course important for compliance?

  • It is a legal requirement, under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, for employers to provide all individuals who are likely to come into contact with any materials containing asbestos with information about the location and condition of the asbestos and to ensure correct safety procedures are followed.
  • SOCOTEC Asbestos Ltd’s UKATA Asbestos Awareness online training has been certified and approved by the United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association (UKATA). Successful completion is marked by the receipt of the nationally-recognised UKATA Asbestos Awareness online training certificate, which is a prerequisite for anyone whose work might disturb asbestos.
  • The UKATA Asbestos Awareness online course provides an in-depth training package covering topics that address the relevant regulatory requirements: the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 10, and the Approved Code Of Practice L143 second edition, Managing and Working with Materials Containing Asbestos.

Legal Requirements

  • UKATA Asbestos Awareness modules are highly interactive, using images, links, and videos. The online course ensures that your employees and contractors can identify the presence of asbestos within a building, the different types of asbestos that they might come across and where asbestos may be found. It will help participants to understand the potential health risks caused by the asbestos fibres and highlight the requirements for protective equipment and safe working practices.
  • The EssentialSkillz Asbestos Awareness eLearning course provides asbestos awareness training as per paragraphs 232 to 236 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 UKATA Asbestos Awareness eLearning course 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 useful preparation for a manager attending such a course.
  • The course can be used as part of an induction process, or as a refresher for existing staff.
  • The course should be supplemented with localised information, for example the location of the asbestos register and contacts in case of an emergency or other query. 
  • The course is not sufficient for those carrying out deliberate removal or remediation of asbestos as part of their work.
