Asbestos awareness online course – As well as informing you about the general risks of working with asbestos, this asbestos awareness training course will also provide you with all the essential information and facts.

This training is a variation on our Asbestos Awareness online course and contains specific information for Architects and Designers.

 Asbestos awareness training is this right for you?

Asbestos Awareness training course is one of a couple of online asbestos courses that we offer.

The Asbestos Awareness training course for Architects and Designers covers all the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness online course, but it contains an additional module at the end which is aimed specifically at Architects and Designers that are working with older buildings that may contain asbestos.

It provides information about the current legislation which governs asbestos in the workplace and also outlines the responsibilities of Architects and Designers.

So if you work as an Architect or Designer, by completing this online training, you will learn all about asbestos and what your responsibilities are when it comes to Health and Safety and legislation.

Asbestos awareness for Architects & Designers: 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.

In regulation 10 of CAR, it clearly states that every employer must ensure that any employees likely to be exposed to or come into contact with asbestos as part of their work are provided with sufficient information, instruction and training on asbestos.

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

You will learn about the different types of asbestos, what they look like, what common products and building materials you are likely to find them in and the locations where you are most likely to find them.

Asbestos awareness training for Architects & Designers will help you gain the knowledge required to avoid carrying out any work that may accidentally disturb asbestos, to protect yourself and others from any unnecessary exposure to asbestos, and you will also learn about current legislation on working with asbestos materials in general.

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.
