Overview

THIS COURSE IS NOW RoSPA APPROVED
Asbestos has often been called ‘the hidden killer’ - indeed the word
asbestos today conjures up a genuine fear of irreversible damage to health.

This is borne out by statistics which suggest that asbestos is probably the biggest occupational killer in the UK.

In domestic properties, asbestos used as a building material was at its peak between 1945 and 1980, and, in the UK, there are over nine million houses of this age. In addition, it is estimated that there are about one and a half million workplace properties with some form of asbestos in them.

So, while there’s relatively little chance of experiencing the degree of exposure that many suffered during the 20th century, the risk is still there, which is why this course – aimed at non-licensed contractors/workers – is so important.

This course is aimes at any person who is likely to come into contact or work with asbestos as a nonlicensed contractor/worker.
