1 day course
Who should attend?
The Asbestos Management Course provides you with the knowledge you need to manage asbestos in premises to the standards required by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012). In particular it covers Regulation 4 – management of asbestos in non-domestic premises: the so called “duty to manage”.
You have duties under Regulation 4 if you (or your company) are responsible for repair or maintenance of premises, and the list can include employers, self-employed people and building owners and managers. The course is also suitable for anyone who has responsibilities for managing risks from asbestos in domestic premises.
Managing asbestos is important because many people now dying from asbestos-related diseases, like mesothelioma and lung cancer, are tradesmen who alter and maintain buildings. In addition, users of buildings are increasingly concerned about risks from asbestos, and want to know that businesses can demonstrate proper management.
The duties apply to the maintenance or repair of “non-domestic premises” or access to such premises. In practice, this means all workplaces that may contain asbestos. These standards and methods can also be applied by owners and operators of domestic premises to help them manage asbestos risks.
Training approaches include presentation, case studies and the practical use of risk assessment and management tools.
