Asbestos has been fully banned from use in the UK since 1999, but due to the dangerous substance being used heavily within construction and industry in the decades prior to that it can still be found in a high percentage of buildings throughout the country.
Whenever a refurbishment or renovation is due to take place it is important that an asbestos survey takes place to fully analyse the potential dangers of asbestos present. It only takes one breath of asbestos fibres to cause illness, and the symptoms sometimes do not show for up to 50-years in the form of mesothelioma, asbestosis, or other asbestos-related cancers, that are almost always fatal.
Asbestos awareness is therefore vital, and that is why we have developed an extensive asbestos awareness training course, to provide a substantial understanding of the dangers of asbestos. We also provide full information about the tight regulations related to asbestos, including HSE CAR 2020 Regulations that state that any person likely to disturb asbestos materials during a work project must take an asbestos awareness course.
Our IATP Asbestos Awareness Course takes half a day to complete, with classroom-based learning providing all the relevant regulatory and safety information about the dangers of asbestos and safe management of asbestos. We can provide these training courses from our offices in Fareham, or arrange to come to you at a venue of your choosing.
If you would like to make a booking for an asbestos awareness training course with Artisan Surveyors you can email us at email@example.com and we will contact you at a convenient time.
