Asbestos Awareness Training

All workers who are liable to disturb asbestos during their normal work should be trained so that they can recognise asbestos containing materials and know what to do if they come across them. 

The training needs to be appropriate for the work and the roles undertaken by individuals.

Under Regulation 10 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to those employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos during the course of their work.

Awareness training

This training is for those persons who are liable to disturb asbestos while carrying out their normal everyday work, 

or who may influence how work is carried out, such as:

  • General maintenance workers
  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • Joiners
  • Painters and decorators
  • Construction workers
  • Shop fitters
  • Building surveyors

You will need awareness training so you know how to avoid the risks and how to protect yourself.

Refresher training

Refresher training should not be a repeat of the initial training. It should be given at least once a year and be appropriate to the workers’ familiarity with the work.
