The UKATA Asbestos Awareness course is a one-day training course for anyone whose work exposes them to asbestos. This Asbestos awareness course will provide you with a greater understanding of the dangers of asbestos and how it affects the industry you work in.

With the knowledge from this course, you will be able to protect yourself and others from the health repercussions that come with disturbing asbestos.

Demolition workers and those working in the refurbishment and construction industry will benefit immensely from this course. This is especially necessary if the work they complete exposes any asbestos containing materials.

Why Take the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Course?

The course is obligatory for those who work in building maintenance, such as plumbers, electricians and construction workers.

Every employer must make sure that anyone who is liable to disturb asbestos during their normal work is given the training they need.

Asbestos can be hazardous to your long term health if disturbed, so it is important to know how to recognise it so that you can avoid it and report it. Attending this training could save your life.
