UKATA Asbestos Awareness Course

The UKATA Asbestos Awareness Course is designed to provide operators with awareness training, so you know how to avoid the risks.

Duration: 1/2 Day (4 hours)
Location: On-Site or Wilson Adrain Training Centre
Delegates: Maximum of 15

If you work on buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000, asbestos could be present. As a result, you will need to seek Asbestos Awareness training to know how to avoid the risks correctly.

Asbestos Awareness training should be undertaken by people who supervise, influence or carry out work, which could disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos. More specifically, those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades.

Undertake the Wilson Adrain Safety Management course and we will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to ensure your business complies with regulations.
