Our IATP accredited CAT B Course is a full day course which will enable you to safely and
professionally work with and remove lower risk, non licensed Asbestos Containing materials.
Materials that can be worked with include:
• Artex (textured coating)
• Asbestos cement
• Vinyl floor tiles
• Bitumen and felts
• Composite materials, e.g. cisterns & window boards
This course will be particularly valuable for builders and trades who work on refurbishment, demolition and extensions to existing buildings. As an example, plasterers will be able to remove textured coating (Artex) themselves as part of their work and charge for these works as asbestos removal, rather than waiting for an asbestos removal contractor to come in and do these removal works before they can continue with their own work. Typical asbestos remedial works are charged out at around £1,000 per day for a team of 2 so why not bring these works in house?!
To carry out remedial works on non licenced materials your operatives will also need to do a face fit test, which we also offer as part of this course.
If you are planning to carry out Notifiable Non Licenced Works (NNLW) then personnel will need to undergo a medical and have their health records maintained. For transport of asbestos waste you will either need to have an EA Hazardous Waste Carrier Licence to transport yourself, or have it collected by a waste carrier. We can assist you with advice on both medicals and EA licence if required.
