Available Training Courses – 1st May, 1st June, 3rd July

With our practical experience and expertise in asbestos removal, we also train individuals in ‘Asbestos Awareness’ and ‘Non-Licensed Work with Asbestos’ and as members of UKATA, the UK Asbestos Training Association, we adhere to their benchmarks which ensures quality training to a recognised standard.

Asbestos Awareness
We understand that in order for an organisation to know what the risks of asbestos are, the dangers and the protocol, it is first necessary for them to know that there are risks, dangers and protocols. This starts with an asbestos awareness course to get individuals familiar with the substance and the hazards.

The course will cover topics including:

  • The properties of asbestos and its effect on health
  • The types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACMs in buildings and plant
  • The general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency
  • How to avoid the risks from asbestos

Non-Licensed Work with Asbestos
This course is tailored for specific types of non-licensed work required by your company.

The course will cover topics including:

  • Asbestos awareness
  • Asbestos exposure
  • Safe practices and control measures
  • Recording and reporting
  • Maintenance of RPE and PPE
  • Hygiene requirements
  • Decontamination
  • Licence-required work
  • Control techniques

Refresher training is available for both courses.

Our trainer can deliver ‘Asbestos Awareness’ and ‘Non-Licensed Work with Asbestos’ courses anywhere in the country, as well as at our Bristol office. If there’s a group needing training, we can train up to 15 people per course.

Alternatively, this Spring brings with it new scheduled courses held at our Head Office in Bristol. These will be taking place on 1st May, 1st June and the 3rd July. These can be attended by individuals from sites, organisations and businesses nation-wide.

Additional to these courses, we also now offer Fire Safety on Construction Sites and Fire Marshall/Fire Warden training as bespoke courses that can be quoted for on request. Again, these courses can be delivered anywhere in the country and will take a day’s attendance.
