CPD - Asbestos Awareness Training

This Asbestos Awareness training course looks at what asbestos is, what an Asbestos Management Plan is; it considers some of the major diseases associated with working with asbestos and the effects they have on the human body; and it covers what you should do if you are ever accidentally exposed.

Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their staff know where asbestos and related materials are likely to be found, how to avoid the risk of exposure and to provide the necessary protective equipment to keep them safe. Many buildings constructed before the year 2000 may still have asbestos in them, meaning that it’s absolutely crucial that anyone who might be exposed – such as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters, and builders – must have asbestos awareness training.

This Asbestos Awareness training provides you with everything you need to know about the basics of asbestos safety awareness, however, please note – only HSE licensed contractors can test for and remove asbestos!


  • Learn about what the law says about asbestos
  • Learn about what you should do if you disturb small and/or large amounts or asbestos
  • Understand the steps to take to reduce and remove the risks at work
