This training course is bespoke dependant on the delegates requirements; the course content is determined by undertaking a training needs analysis on individual delegates attending open courses or discussions with the client at the time of booking to establish the correct course and duration for the training. The course is usually a full days training as a minimum, or 1.5 days in some cases where the delegate may require more than the standard.
It is a requirement that the delegate has undertaken a full Asbestos Awareness course within 6 months of the date of the Working with Non-Licensed Asbestos course. If this has not been undertaken, then the asbestos awareness can be organised for the same day. This is a full day training if asbestos awareness is included and is required to be annually refreshed.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 10 requires every employer to ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to their employees who are or who are liable to be, exposed to asbestos, or who supervise such employees.
The course also applies to any persons carrying out non-licensed works with asbestos containing materials, as laid down in CAR 2012, Reg 3(2). This would normally include, but is not limited to, trade operatives such as demolition workers, construction workers, general maintenance staff, electricians, plumbers, gas fitters, painters and decorators, joiners, shop fitters, plasterers, roofers, heating and ventilation engineers, telecommunication engineers, computer installers, fire and burglar alarm installers, architects, building surveyors and other such professionals or any other persons likely to disturb and carry out work on asbestos containing materials as defined in CAR 2012.
