Online Asbestos Awareness Training Course
Asbestos Awareness training is an essential and legal requirement for anyone who carries out any works on the fabric or structure of any building built or refurbished before the year 2000. This is simply because any building or workplace built or refurbished before the year 2000 may have asbestos or asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) present within the fabric of the building as asbestos was widely used before this date. This is exactly why Asbestos Awareness Training is a legal requirement for anyone working on the fabric of a building constructed before the year 2000.
The use of asbestos in construction was only banned in its entirety in the year 2000. Our Online Asbestos Awareness Training Course has been designed to provide online asbestos awareness training to those who carry out building, maintenance or installation works on properties constructed before the year 2000.
