About the Event


Asbestos Awareness - For all who work in Schools - Why? Asbestos is found in 75% of state schools.

In many cases it does not pose an immediate risk but it is vital that there is rigorous monitoring and inspection. Parents need to know that the health of their children is not being put at risk and of course teachers and others who work within the premises will need protection from the hazards of asbestos.

By the end of this course, learners will:

  • Understand why asbestos and asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) can be harmful and must be treated as hazardous substances.
  • Understand the very serious ill-health effects of asbestos.
  • Understand the control measures for asbestos required by the law.
  • Understand the responsibilities of employers and employees.
