UKATA Asbestos Courses at Sanctus Training Ltd
Asbestos can be found in any building built before the year 2000 (houses, factories, offices, schools, hospitals etc.) and causes around 5000 deaths every year.
Sanctus Training Ltd offer UKATA Asbestos Awareness and UKATA non-licensed asbestos removal courses at our purpose built Asbestos facility. We also deliver Face Fit Testing training which is ideal for those who need to carry out a qualitative face fit test on employees (sometimes called the taste test).
Asbestos can be found in many everyday building materials including ceiling tiles, floor tiles, textured coatings, insulating board, roofing felt, textiles e.g. old fire blankets and fuse boxes.
The HSE have recently published a number of news articles relating to companies being fined due to unsafe removal of asbestos – http://www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/news.htm. Employers have a duty of care to manage asbestos as highlighted in regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
The UKATA Asbestos Awareness course will allow delegates to develop an awareness and knowledge of the hazards and risks exposed by asbestos containing materials, Delegates will gain awareness of the key aspects of asbestos regulations and how they fit into the broader context of health and safety legislation.
The UKATA non-licensed asbestos removal course is a highly practical course. It explores the requirements and acceptable precautions with practical demonstration of some techniques for removal. Delegates will develop skills for non-licensed asbestos removal working with products that simulate ACMs within an enclosure gaining real experience of how it feels to undertake such work.
