Asbestos training

Specifically designed for the social housing sector incorporating asbestos awareness with duty to manage.

The one day course provides delegates with an understanding of asbestos awareness and the legislative requirements of asbestos management. 

This one day training session has been tailored to combine the asbestos awareness course but also acknowledge the differences that surround asbestos management within the social housing sector and what has to be done to comply with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 as well as other legislation that exists once we enter individual dwellings. 

On successful completion, delegates should: 

  • Be familiar with types, uses, risks and likely occurrences of asbestos in buildings 
  • Be familiar with the requirements as set out in CAR 2012 with regard to responsibilities 
  • Understand the requirements for asbestos surveys and different types of surveys 
  • Be familiar with the results of an asbestos survey, how to decipher the information contained within the asbestos survey report 
  • Understand the need for (and how to create) an asbestos management plan and its use 
  • Understand the difference between licensed and non-licensed work with asbestos 
  • Understand the types and uses of air monitoring and the role of the analytical companies. 

Who should attend? 

This course is for everyone with ‘duty to manage’ responsibilities for asbestos and responsibility for protecting the people who work in such premises. Whether you’re an asset director, manager or team leader, planned and responsive maintenance manager, voids manager, health and safety officer or adviser, surveyor, or you work in aids and adaptations, this is an essential training course for you.
