IAPT Asbestos Awareness


The 'Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations’ state that businesses have specific duties to identify, assess and control the risk of asbestos materials. With an estimated 3000 different types of asbestos products installed in up to 75% of all workplaces in the UK, you are likely to require specialist assistance with this undertaking.

The aim of this ½ day course is to increase general awareness of asbestos within the working environment among construction operatives, craft workers and supervisors.

Assessment will be by means of a short questionnaire at the end of the course.
