Removal of Non-licensed and Notifiable Non-licensed Asbestos..
The HSE require that training is provided to all employees whose work activities could potentially or will expose them to asbestos. It is essential that you are adequately insured or in the process of being insured to carry out work on non-licensed asbestos materials. In providing this training to your employees you are ensuring compliance with your statutory obligations under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
What is the objective of this course?
We will ensure all delegates are provided with an awareness and improved knowledge of the hazards and risks posed by asbestos containing materials within their everyday working environment. We will provide an overview of the applicable legislation currently in place and what your obligations are as an employer and your rights as an employee. Each delegate shall undertake a practical session and pass an examination to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained within the training course. This will allow each delegate to demonstrate competence in removal of non-licensed asbestos materials to the HSE.
