About the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training Course
Asbestos is an extremely dangerous substance often found in older buildings where it was used for insulation and fireproofing. Being that it can cause serious health problems, such as mesothelioma, the use of asbestos was banned in 1999 but is still present in many older buildings.
Under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, if you are working in an environment where you are likely to disturb asbestos materials then you must be aware of, and fully trained in, the dangers and correct safety practices.
UKATA accredited training is universally recognised as being the industry standard and the online course is a valid and convenient method.
This UKATA certified Asbestos Awareness online training is a 2 hour course that will meet all of your needs.
Once the UKATA Asbestos Awareness training has been completed you will receive a certificate valid for 12 months.
