Asbestos Awareness Course Overview
Asbestos Awareness eLearning course, a fast and effective way to meet your health and safety responsibilities. Asbestos is an incredibly hazardous substance that causes serious ill-health to anyone who works in places where they may come into contact with it. Anyone who is likely to disturb asbestos in their work must have an awareness of the correct health and safety procedures to follow.
Interactive and dynamic, this RoSPA approved Asbestos Awareness eLearning course clearly outlines why asbestos is dangerous, where you can find it, how to identify it and how to work safely using good working practices and appropriate PPE.
This course is designed to make your staff aware of the dangers of unknowingly coming into contact with asbestos and to help them understand the importance of following best practice. Learners familiarise themselves with typical asbestos containing materials and explore where asbestos can generally be found in buildings so they are aware of where the dangers might be.
As well as the law and different asbestos surveys, learners are shown practical ways to keep themselves safe including making sure they know the location of any asbestos, how to avoid creating dust and wearing PPE correctly. Finally, they are told what to do if they accidentally disturb asbestos.
This eLearning only provides awareness education. Face to face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.
