About the Course

Asbestos is a carcinogenic building material used in the previous century. Thousands of people fall ill and die yearly from last exposure to asbestos.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) are relevant to employers, employees, self-employed persons and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos-containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training are given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. The asbestos awareness course includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos. See your doctor immediately if you suspect you have been exposed to asbestos; seeking medical help will protect both your health and the safety of others who may be affected by asbestos exposure.

Apart from informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the IATP asbestos awareness training course will deliver content on
how to identify asbestos-containing materials,
specify the location of asbestos,
safety measures to reduce the risks and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos. Don't hesitate to contact us if you want to learn more about the asbestos awareness course or register your interest.

Each module contains several multiple-choice questions. Candidates are required to get 100% on these tests to pass the course. Candidates can review all the answers at the end of each module before final submission and three attempts to achieve the required result.

Awareness of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the associated risks gives workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos. The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) stipulates that employers must inform their employees about the risks and safe practices for working with asbestos.
