General Asbestos Awareness

General Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos may be found in any building constructed before the year 2000. ABP’s General Asbestos Awareness course offers a basic introduction to asbestos found in and around buildings and workplaces.

Course Objectives:

Our Asbestos Awareness course is delivered to staff who may disturb asbestos as part of their normal work. The course is designed to enable all staff including maintenance and/or management to do their work safely and prevent unnecessary exposure to asbestos. This course can be tailored specifically to meet the client’s requirements.

Since 2007 we have trained over 3000 delegates in General Asbestos Awareness, at all levels from Managing Director to hands-on maintenance staff. Training can be given at either your venue or at our training centre in Millbrook, Southampton. ABP Associates Ltd is registered with IATP and BOHS.

Topics covered:

  • The properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of lung cancer for asbestos workers who smoke.
  • 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, for example an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace.
  • How to avoid the risks from asbestos, for example for building work, no employee should carry out work which disturbs the fabric of a building unless the employer has confirmed that ACMs are not present.

Course Duration: Half day
