Asbestos Awareness Training Course
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires that employers, or the self-employed, ensure that anyone liable to disturb asbestos during their work, or who supervises such employees, receives the correct level of information, instruction and training to enable them to carry out their work safely and competently and without risk to themselves or others. In practice this training can take many forms and cover a wide range of knowledge and practical instruction.
