Asbestos is a danger in many different sectors and it is estimated that 20 tradesmen, 4 plumbers, 6 electricians and 8 joiners die every week from this hidden killer. It is important to know when there may be a risk of exposure and how to avoid coming into contact with Asbestos. This latest course from ProTrainings is available as a video online course or though approved ProTrainings instructors nationally.
Asbestos was extensively used as a building material in the UK from the 1950’s to the mid 1980’s. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation. Any building built before 2000 can obtain asbestos and they can be homes, schools, offices, hospitals or any building. Asbestos materials in good condition are safe unless asbestos fibres become airborne, which happens when materials are damaged.
This course covers the risk, why we need to avoid exposure and can happen with exposure as well as what to do if you come across possible Asbestos to ensure you and your work colleagues are kept safe. The certificate is valid for 3 years but to comply with the HSE recommendations if it advised to complete a refresher every year.
