Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos Awareness Training in line with Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the supporting Approved Code of Practice L143 Managing and Working with Asbestos.

Who Should Attend?

Asbestos Awareness training is intended to give workers and supervisors the information they need, to avoid work that may disturb asbestos during any normal work which could disturb the fabric of a building, or other items which might contain asbestos.

Training Method

We use an audio and visual presentation, with handouts and practical activities and there is a multi-choice written test.


Asbestos Awareness training can be delivered to your site nationwide or you can attend one of our half-day Asbestos Awareness courses here at our Training Centre in Retford, Nottinghamshire. Asbestos Awareness training can count towards your CPD.

Course Content

Asbestos Awareness Training covers the following:

  • How to avoid the risk of exposure to asbestos
  • The general procedures to deal with an emergency
  • The properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of developing lung cancer for asbestos workers who smoke
  • The types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and asbestos materials in buildings and plant

It will not prepare workers, or self-employed contractors, to carry out work with asbestos-containing materials (ACM’s). If a worker is planning to carry out work that will disturb ACM’s, further information, instruction and training will be needed.
