CPD Asbestos Awareness Training

Online CPD Asbestos Awareness

ETD’s CPD Asbestos Awareness Course shows you how to protect yourself and others from asbestos exposure. Asbestos is one of the most dangerous materials found in buildings. Construction workers used the material for many years before realising its dangers. Unfortunately, asbestos has caused millions of illnesses and deaths over the years and is still present in many buildings. Luckily, with the right training, workers can effectively deal with asbestos and reduce the risk of illness. ETD’s Asbestos Awareness Course helps workforces to understand the risks of asbestos and respond effectively when exposed to the material. The course is ideal for tradespeople who may encounter asbestos while working on construction sites. These tradespeople may include builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and building maintenance professionals. All work with asbestos-containing materials falls under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
