IATP Approved Asbestos Awareness Course Frequently Asked Questions
Why should you invest in an asbestos awareness course?
Asbestos is a particularly dangerous substance which can cause lung cancers. The symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses are usually undetectable for several years following exposure, which is one of the reasons why everyone operating in a role that makes contact with, or exposure to, asbestos likely should invest in training.
How often should an asbestos awareness course be undertaken?
Even if you have completed an asbestos awareness course, a refresher course should be completed at a minimum of once a year. If you do not feel comfortable in your understanding, you should invest in a course sooner.
