Asbestos Awareness Training


HSE CAR 2006 cover

We run regular courses, that can be booked as an individual or a group, from our training room in Medway.

Alternatively training can be carried out at our client's premises and in some circumstances this can make the training more relevant to the environment that they are working in.

Asbestos awareness training is legally required for anyone who may be exposed to asbestos containing materials during their working activities and those that supervise their work activities. The training is also useful for anyone requiring a better understanding of the basic elements of asbestos in buildings and is a good "stepping stone" to more in-depth courses.

At the end of the course employees should have a better understanding of 

  • Duty holders responsibilities
  • Emergency procedures
  • Health effects of asbestos
  • Types of asbestos containing materials (ACMs)
  • Asbestos in buildings
  • The role of the asbestos removal company
  • Managing asbestos


Over the years, we have found that providing information about Asbestos and the way it needs to be managed puts everyone's mind at rest. Being left in the dark can leave too much opportunity for hearsay and scare mongering.

If this is something that you feel would be of benefit, please contact us to discuss any requirements that you may have.

Those carrying out the work must have the correct information, instruction and training, to protect themselves and others from the risks to health that exposure to asbestos causes.  The link above provides more information on what is required.
