Asbestos Awareness Refresher Training Course

Duration: 
1 Hour

OVERVIEW

Asbestos has been used for decades as an inexpensive industrial material with properties such as high tensile strength, heat resistance, incombustibility and resistance to chemical attack. It has been known for more than 50 years that exposure to asbestos can cause serious diseases including cancer and asbestosis.

Use of asbestos is now banned in most countries but it is still produced and used in several. However, even where use is not allowed, asbestos can still be present in buildings, industrial plants and homes. Those considered most at risk are workers who are exposed to asbestos containing materials (ACMs) during repair, maintenance or refurbishment work, where it is likely to be disturbed. It is important that the dangers of asbestos are understood by all those who may encounter it, with systems put in place to prevent or reduce exposure.

OBJECTIVES

Attendees to our Asbestos Awareness Refresher training course will understand the health hazards of exposure to asbestos, how exposure can occur and how these risks can be managed. With asbestos awareness provided, attendees will be equipped with the basic knowledge and considerations for safe planning of work.

Typically, this will include professionals and workers who are involved in refurbishment works, service and maintenance and other similar trades.
