Asbestos is a hazardous substance; every year over 5,000 people die from asbestos related diseases, such as lung cancer. Anyone likely to disturb or damage asbestos containing materials must be aware of the dangers and know what procedures to follow.

Our (category A) asbestos awareness online training will help you to understand where asbestos can be found, the risks associated with it and how to reduce the risk of asbestos fibres being released. If you plan to carry out work which will knowingly disturb or damage asbestos, you will require a higher level of training (category B or C).

Lessons:

1. Asbestos – The basics Lesson

2. Legislation and responsibilities
