This training is for anyone planning to carry out non-licensed asbestos work as described in Asbestos Essentials Task Manual (HSG 210).
The training can be the full course or task specific e.g. for electricians planning to drill screw holes to asbestos textured coating.
Workers who may need this level of information, instruction and training include those whose work will require them to disturb asbestos containing materials, such as:
drilling holes in asbestos materials (including for sampling and analysis purposes)
laying cables in areas containing undamaged asbestos materials;
removing asbestos containing floor tiles
cleaning or repairing asbestos cement sheet roofing or cladding
The session is a mixture of theory and practical training to ensure you and your staff have the knowledge and skills to work safely with non-licensed asbestos materials in line with Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Please note this course does not cover work with licensable asbestos materials.
Non-Licensed Asbestos Work Training covers the following:
how to make suitable and sufficient assessments about the risk of exposure to asbestos;
safe work practices and control measures, including an explanation of the correct use of control measures, protective equipment and work methods;
selection and appropriate use of protective equipment;
waste handling procedures;
relevant legal requirements; and
circumstances when non-licensed work may be notifiable (i.e. NNLW).
Our vision is a world where workers are not exposed to asbestos and our aim is to keep workers safe through training, identification and practical management of asbestos. We understand the unique requirements of each organisation and will ensure the services we deliver reflect our client’s individual needs.
