1. What is Asbestos?

In section 1, we look at the three major types of asbestos – chrysotile, crocidolite and amosite, looking at their structure, how they were used, why they were used and why they are such a health risk.  We cover the four major diseases caused by asbestos – asbestosis, pleural thickening, mesothelioma and lung cancer.

2. Where’s it found?







In this section we look at the Law, the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the legal requirement to have up-to-date information on the location and condition of any asbestos in a building before any work is started. We then look at the places you are most likely to find asbestos, how it was commonly used and where it can commonly be found in buildings today. We use an interactive building – click to see how asbestos may have been used in each area.

 Test & Certificate

This Asbestos Awareness training programme concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.

3. Emergency Procedure

Here we look at the procedures that should be followed if you should unexpectedly discover or disturb asbestos, whether it is a small amount, or if there is a lot of dust or debris. We use step-by-step guidance and include the requirement to keep a record of any incidents. We also highlight the need to practice emergency procedures.
