Our Asbestos Awareness Training course is accredited by the Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) and delivered by qualified trainers with hands on practical experience of asbestos containing materials (ACM’s). This course is aimed at owners, managers and employees of any businesses who might come into contact with, or have a responsibility to manage asbestos during the course of their work.

Every week 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related disease, therefore this training is a must and of particular interest to anyone working on building, particularly those built or refurbished before 2000. Participation helps organisations demonstrate compliance with their statutory duties in addition to providing evidence towards SSIP accreditations. It is currently recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that Asbestos Awareness Training be repeated on an annual basis.
