UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training
Here at TASC Environmental we provide UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulation (CAR 2012). This mandatory Asbestos Awareness Training is required to be given to all employees whose work could potentially expose them to asbestos.
Who needs training?
There are a number of occupations where asbestos may be present and therefore potentially disturbed, these can range from someone who drills a hole in a wall to the caretaker of a building. According to the 2012 CAR Regulations some examples of these are listed below –
♦ Demolition workers
♦ Construction workers
♦ General maintenance staff
♦ Gas fitters
♦ Painters & Decorators
♦ Shop fitters
♦ Telecommunication engineers
♦ Building Surveyors
♦ Fire/burglar alarm installers
♦ Heating & ventilation engineers
The above are just some examples of those requiring UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training, it is important that anyone who may come across asbestos as part of there work must have Asbestos Awareness Training.
How will the training be delivered?
We’re able to come to your premises to train your employees on site. Our courses are delivered by experienced staff who are able to tailor the course syllabus to the specific nature of your business and the needs of your employees. We are more than happy to include additional elements to the standard Asbestos Awareness Training which could be unique to your particular sector.
For example; recycling companies may occasionally come across small amounts of asbestos in skips. The standard Asbestos Awareness Training is not sufficient, however we can provide a bespoke addition to the course that will cover additional training needs for any given Asbestos related requirements.
Also for example a roofing company may require specific training for removal of Asbestos roofing sheets, again an additional bespoke element for this can be included on request.
The Asbestos Awareness Training course lasts for half a day and includes a short test at the end. A UKATA certificate will be issued to atendees upon completion of the course.
We are also able to supply site cards at an additional cost, if required.
Our experienced trainers are all working Asbestos Surveyors, so they can provide a wealth of knowledge and are able to answer any questions you may have.
