This Safewell online course is RoSPA & IATP Approved, and suitable for any business that uses asbestos, or employs people who come into contact with asbestos as part of their work.

Course Description

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos as it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons, and duty holders and cover all work dealing with asbestos-containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction, and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.

As well as informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver content to help them recognise materials containing asbestos, make them aware of where it was used, including steps they can take to minimise the risks, and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos.

Each module is rounded off with several multiple-choice questions and candidates are required to get 100% results on these tests in order to pass the course. They have the opportunity to review all the answers at the end of each module before final submission and will be given 3 attempts to achieve the required result.

Target Audience

The Asbestos Awareness course is designed for anyone who may come into contact with asbestos during the course of their work. Most commonly, this includes builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and other building-related and maintenance trade workers.

Advantages

Being aware of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the risks associated with them, gives workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid performing work that may disturb asbestos. The course is approved by leading industry bodies RoSPA and the IATP.

Online training is flexible, efficient, and cost-effective, meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.

Further Progression

There is a wide range of other health and safety online courses available in the eLearning suite, that are as relevant to the same industries as these courses.
