Asbestos Awareness Online Training Introduction

Asbestos is one of the most dangerous building materials ever produced. Thousands of people fall ill and die every year due to the use of asbestos. Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause them to lodge inside your lungs which damages and scars them. This causes Asbestosis, a chronic lung disease with no known cure.

Asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) have been around for a very long time. There is evidence that asbestos was used by the ancient Egyptians! It was from the end of World War Two until 1999 though, that asbestos was widely used in the construction industry. This means that any building built or refurbished prior to 2000 may contain asbestos.

Who needs Asbestos Awareness Training?

Asbestos regulations place a legal obligation on employers to ensure that any employee who may come in to contact with asbestos containing materials has adequate training. Training certificates are valid for 12 months, so annual refreshers are also recommended.

You should take asbestos awareness training even if your work does not involve working with asbestos. Everyday simple tasks such as hammering a nail into a wall or scraping Artex off a ceiling might disturb asbestos. Knowing what to look out for could save you and your co-workers lives.

You can find asbestos containing materials in your home. Anyone who is planning on refurbishing their home is encouraged to take this training. However, the people most at risk are tradespeople such as plumbers, electricians and builders.

If you are going to be moving or working with asbestos, then our non-licensed working with asbestos course may be better for you.

Asbestos Awareness Course Modules

Our training tutor, Nigel, will take you through the asbestos awareness online training course. This consists of a series of videos followed by multiple choice questions. It is recommended that you work through the modules in order. You can review the videos as many times as you need before submitting your answers. If you need to stop at any point, simply log back in and our intuitive system will start again from the last completed module.
