Introduction to management online training

Summary of course: Asbestos is a hazardous substance; every year over 5,000 people die from asbestos related diseases, such as lung cancer. Anyone likely to disturb or damage asbestos containing materials must be aware of the dangers and know what procedures to follow.

Our (category A) asbestos awareness online training will help you to understand where asbestos can be found, the risks associated with it and how to reduce the risk of asbestos fibres being released. If you plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb or damage asbestos, you will require a higher level of training (category B or C).

Course content: This (Category A) asbestos awareness online training course focuses on:

  • What is asbestos and where it can be found
  • Why it was used and then banned
  • Asbestos related diseases and ill health effects
  • Legislation and responsibilities of employers and employees
  • Risk assessments; risk reduction, controlling exposure
  • Friability
  • Emergency produces.

A review from one of our learners:

I did this course as part of my personal development at work, but now I see asbestos everywhere (I live in an old house!). This course was exactly what I needed. It a great course to give you a general understanding of asbestos, where it can be found and the dangers. There was some stuff about legislation and risk assessments which I also found useful, as I had not covered this before.
