Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos, and the construction industry widely used it
right up until the year 2000.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 apply to employers, employees, self-employed individuals and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos-containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
This course covers the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness course with an additional module explicitly aimed at architects and designers working with buildings that may contain asbestos. It
provides information about the legislation governing asbestos in work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.
The course consists of 5 modules with questions at the end. You are given a chance to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission, and you will be given three attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 100%.
