Asbestos Awareness training
Asbestos Awareness Training
Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations, (CAR) 2012, deals with the duty of the employer to ensure that adequate information, training and instruction is given to his employees.
Information, instruction and training is required to be given to all employees whose work will expose, or could potentially expose, them to asbestos.
Asbestos awareness training should be given to all demolition workers and those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades whose work potentially could disturb the fabric of the building.
Additional information, instruction and training should be given to those workers whose work disturbs Asbestos containing materials.
Asbestos awareness and additional information, instruction and training should be given to those employees who work with asbestos in the manufacturing industry, those who carry out asbestos sampling and analysis, and those maintenance workers whose work will knowingly involve disturbing asbestos.
