Asbestos Awareness Training Course

Asbestos awareness training is required for employees that could foreseeably be exposed to asbestos. A focus should be given to any demolition workers and those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance or allied trades where it is foreseeable that their work will disturb the fabric of the building because ACMs may become exposed during this work.
