Course Description

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of
people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction
industry right up until the year 2000.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) apply 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 is given to
employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others
who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.

As well as informing candidates about the risks of working with asbestos, the course will deliver
content to help them recognise asbestos containing materials, make them aware of where it was
used, include steps they can take to minimise the risks and discuss the legislation that applies to
working with asbestos.

Each module is rounded off with several multiple-choice questions, candidates are required to get
100% on these tests to pass the course. They have the opportunity to review all the answers at the
end of each module before final submission and will be given 3 attempts to achieve the required

Target Audience

The Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers course covers the same subjects as our
Asbestos Awareness course with an additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers
working with buildings that may contain asbestos. It provides information about the legislation
governing asbestos in work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.


Being aware of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the risks associated with them
give workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos.

The course is approved by leading industry bodies ROSPA and the IATP.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through
the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their
work and personal life.

Further Progression

There are a wide range of other health and safety courses available in the eLearning suite that are
relevant to the same industries as these courses.
