EMS offers asbestos awareness training that covers the following topics in through both written and oral presentation:
The properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of lung cancer for asbestos workers who smoke
The types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACM’s in buildings and plant
The general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency, for example an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace.
How to avoid the risks from asbestos. For example, the fabric of a building should not be disturbed unless the employer confirms no asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) are present
Asbestos awareness training can be tailored to suit the individuals attending the course however the HSE set out the mandatory criteria that must be included in the course content.
We are happy to add focus and include your own asbestos survey or specific examples related to your trade (e.g. window replacements).
Asbestos Awareness courses delivered by EMS include an introduction to working with asbestos and extended discussions about the legal aspects and asbestos management.Contact Us
