COURSE OVERVIEW

Our UKATA asbestos awareness training course helps attendees understand the hazards of exposure to asbestos, how exposure can occur and how these risks can be managed. 

Asbestos has been used for decades as an inexpensive industrial material with properties such as high tensile strength, heat resistance, incombustibility and chemical resistance to chemical attack. It has been recognised 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, although it is still produced and used in some. However, even where use is not allowed, asbestos can still be present in buildings, industrial plants, ships. etc. Those considered most at risk now are workers who may disturb asbestos materials during repair, maintenance and refurbishment work. It is therefore important that the dangers of exposure to airborne asbestos are understood by all those who may come in contact with it, and those who manage such work, with systems in place to protect themselves and others.
