We believe that asbestos awareness training should not just cover the dangers of asbestos and what it looks like, but also where it is in YOUR building, what YOUR policies and procedures are and WHO is responsible for managing it.
Far too often we meet tradespeople and building managers who have had asbestos awareness training but don’t understand the implications in relation to their site. Generic, often online, awareness training ticks a box but doesn’t always get the key messages across.
Our in-house trainers get the candidates to interact with the asbestos manager for their site and understand the risks associated with the works that they are carrying out every day. This can be catered to specific job roles too. For example, asbestos awareness training for an Estates Manager isn’t necessary the same training you would give to an electrician or a cleaner.
By making it relevant to them, we find that candidates engage better with the content and come away having a greater appreciation for how to work safely. In our experience this leads to a reduction in near misses and exposure incidents.
