Asbestos awareness training

Every year thousands of people fall ill and die due to exposure to asbestos as it was widely used by the construction industry until the year 2000. Asbestos containing materials (ACM's) have been around in quantities for over 50 years. Whilst the asbestos industry has removed a large amount of this carcinogenic material, there is still a lot in buildings built before it was banned in 1999. The direct result of the introduction of asbestos is that around 4000 people on average die each year from asbestos related diseases. In order to help reduce this number of deaths, the Government introduced a law in 2006 that makes it mandatory for all people working near or on asbestos to have asbestos awareness training. The following passage is from the guidance page regarding Regulation 10 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations:

REGULATION 10: Any worker liable to disturb asbestos while performing their normal everyday work is required to be trained. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to those employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos during the course of their work.

What type of training is necessary?

There are three types of asbestos training:

  • Awareness Training (CAT A)
  • Training for work with asbestos that does not require a license from the HSE (CAT B)
  • Training for asbestos work that does require a license from the HSE (CAT C)

E Learning provides Asbestos Awareness Training for CAT A which meets all the legal requirements for employee awareness training and tells you about avoiding the risks of exposure to Asbestos, and will help you identify when and where you might find it.
