Is it time for your Asbestos Awareness Refresher Training?
I know you’re busy but please take two minutes to read this. It’s important. Here are two quick facts to consider:
- There are around 5,000 asbestos related deaths every year. That’s 4 times as many annual fatalities as road traffic accidents.
- In 2014 an online survey of 750 members of UCATT reported that 28% believed that they had not received adequate training on asbestos awareness.
The Health and Safety Executive advise:
“There is no legal requirement to repeat an entire formal awareness refresher training course every 12 months. However, some form of refresher should be given, as necessary, to help ensure knowledge of asbestos awareness is maintained…a realistic, common-sense approach to refreshing knowledge and skills, based on judgement of individual abilities and training needs is all that is usually required.”
If you completed an Asbestos Awareness course more than 12 months ago then we strongly recommend that you undertake a refresher course. Our refresher course is accredited by IATP and CDP and could see you back at work in less than half-an-hour.
If your current certificate is older than 18 months then we would recommend our full awareness course.
Both courses comply to Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and L143 Code of Practice ‘Managing and Working with Asbestos.’
And the really good news? Neither course is delivered by eLearning.
Those days of being slumped in front of a computer for hours reading screens of dull text and listening to that boring narration are over.
We make our courses entertaining exactly because we’re serious about Health & Safety training. Learning is easier when you’re engaged and people concentrate harder when they’re entertained.
Have a look at what we do. Enjoy the difference. Order a course and begin your Asbestos Awareness Refresher Training.
Get yourself protected.
