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, this Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers E-learning Course will deliver content to help them recognise asbestos containing materials, make them aware of where it was used, including steps they can take to minimise the risks and discuss the legislation that applies to working with asbestos.
Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers Course Target Audience
The Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers E-Learning 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.
Advantages of Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers Course E-Learning
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 Asbestos Awareness E-Learning course for Architects and Designers is approved by leading industry bodies IIRSM, Gatehouse Awards, CPD & 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.
