Our IATP accredited Non-Licensed Works Training 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?!
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.
In addition to the 1 day training you will also need to consider the following to offer:
Facefit testing (checking you are using the correct mask to get a good fit). Typically £30 + VAT
Potential purchase of an H-Type Vacuum.
The costs of your insurance covering you for working with and removing non-licenced low risk asbestos containing materials. Typically this may increase premiums by around £1000 per annum, you may find you are already covered depending on your policy however. We work with a great specialist broker who can help you with this and get the best price.
You will also need to factor in consumables for each removal job you do – polythene sheeting, tape, suits and masks, and also the disposal costs of the asbestos (typically around £250 per tonne), but of course you factor these costs in to each job.
Annual Non-Licensed Works refresher training to remain compliant with CAR 2012. We offer this at a discounted rate to ongoing clients, currently at £144 + VAT (this can be paid monthly at £12 + VAT / month if preferred).
As part of the training we will help and support you with all of the above. It is not just the day’s training we are including here for you, we have a community around this that works both ways!
You will need to take Level 1 Asbestos Awareness prior, unless you have done this within the last 6 months. This is usually £24 (inc VAT). As part of the current discounted offer of £195 + VAT we will include this free of charge.
