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 house 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-licenced contractors/worker - is so important.

This course is aimed at any person who is likely to come into contact or work with asbestos as a non-licensed contractor/worker.

This product allows the student to print a certificate from the course on sucessful completion.
