This on-line category A IATP (Independent Asbestos Training Providers) & ROSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Asbestos Awareness Training Course for Architects from PTTC E Learning is essential for architects, designers and construction managers that work on building that may contain asbestos.
Why Do You Need Asbestos Awareness Training Course for Architects?
Architects and Designers have very specific responsibilities when it come to legislation and regulations surrounding Asbestos. As Asbestos is probably the most dangerous / deadly building material ever used in the history of construction. 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 HSE states that Asbestos Awareness Training should be given to employees whose work could expose them to asbestos. In L143, the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) accompanying the regulations, it is stated that this training should be a mixture of written and oral material, including demonstrations, where appropriate.
Our on-line e-learning Asbestos Awareness training course is approved by Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP), it covers all the necessary legislation you need to stay safe and compliant and shows you how to recognise asbestos, where it is used and how to minimise the risks of working with asbestos.
The Health & Safety Executive states that refresher training should be taken at least annually Awareness training may be incorporated into general health and safety training and if working methods change, eg the type of equipment used to control exposure, the training may need to be undertaken more frequently than once a year.
However, if you work with, remove or disturb Asbestos this course will probably not be the correct one for you, and you should seek Cat B or C training.
