Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers

Asbestos was widely used by the building industry all the way up until the year 2000 and it is one of the most hazardous building materials ever used.

This course is a tailored version of our ‘Asbestos Awareness’ course and features an additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers. It provides all the relevant information on regulations required to work with buildings that may contain asbestos. Furthermore, it details the role of architects and designers in the process.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) dictates that every employer must provide training to employees who are at risk of being exposed to asbestos. By undertaking this course, architects and designers will be more qualified to identify asbestos and implement necessary steps to avoid unfortunate accidents.

Who should take this course?

If you come in contact or may come across asbestos during your work, this course is for you. Common enrollees are people in the trade or construction industry, such as electricians and plumbers.

What are the benefits of this course?

This course is recognised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP), meaning you can rest assured knowing your employees have all the information they need to avoid the risk of disturbing asbestos and causing harm.
