What is Asbestos Risk Assessment Training?

    About Asbestos Risk Assessment Training

    This online Essentials of Asbestos Safety Risk Assessment training course is for anyone tasked with conducting an asbestos risk assessment or who needs to understand this process.

    The asbestos risk assessment course aims to develop an understanding of what the asbestos exposure risk assessment process involves and how to complete it.

    Why Is Asbestos Risk Assessment Training Important?

    Asbestos fibres can easily become airborne if products containing asbestos are handled improperly. These fibres are extremely dangerous when inhaled, causing such conditions as plerual plaque, lung cancer, and other major health problems.

    One in four construction workers has been exposed to asbestos as per the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH). While there are over 5,000 asbestos related deaths each year, according to the Health and Safety Executive.

    Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, property owners must determine whether and where asbestos may exist on the premises. A risk assessment must be completed and controls put in place to ensure that the risk of exposure is as low as reasonably practicable.
