Asbestos Awareness online training (Category A)
Asbestos is a hazardous substance; every year over 5,000 people die from asbestos related diseases, such as lung cancer. Everyone who is likely to disturb or damage asbestos containing materials must be aware of the dangers and know what procedures to follow.
This course will help you to understand where asbestos can be found, the risks associated with it and how to reduce the risk of asbestos fibres being released.
