Asbestos awareness: what is covered?

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) apply to employers, employees, self-employed individuals and duty holders (commercial building owners or Managers). CAR covers all work with asbestos containing materials.

By completing this online asbestos awareness course, you will not only learn to identify these asbestos containing materials, but you’ll also learn about the risks associated with them.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
