UKATA approved asbestos awareness training courses suitable for managers, supervisors, tradesmen and operatives.

Course Objective

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 10, requires every employer to ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to their employees.

Our course provides an awareness of asbestos and develops the knowledge of those attending regarding the hazards and risks posed by asbestos containing materials (ACM’s).

The course also gives an overview of legislation and controls required to safeguard themselves and others.


If you let us know who the course is for we will deliver a course relevant to their responsibilities and working environment…tradesmen, maintenance staff, construction/demolition workers, supervisors, managers, etc.

Courses can be attended by a maximum of 15 people (UKATA guidance).

Course Format

Our course runs for 3-4hours through presentation, engagement with those attending and a short multiple choice test. Handouts are provided for all those attending.

On successful completion a UKATA certificate will be provided.
