Asbestos Awareness Refresher

This course will refresh and update delegates' knowledge on working safely with asbestos, as well as ensuring theirs and their colleagues' safety.

Course Attendees

This course is aimed at those who have previously attended the UKATA Asbestos Awareness course, in accordance with The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 Approved Code of Practice - "Refresher training should be given regularly."

To achieve a UKATA Asbestos Awareness Refresher certificate, delegates must provide evidence of attending a UKATA Asbestos Awareness course within 12-18 months and satisfy the requirements of the Training Needs Analysis (TNA). A skills analysis will be undertaken at the start of the course to confirm delegates have retained information from the Asbestos Awareness course and ensure refresher training is sufficient.

Course Background

Asbestos is one of the biggest occupational health issues and kills around 5000 workers each year, which is more than those who die through road traffic accidents in the UK. However, asbestos is not just a problem of the past. It can be present today in any building built or refurbished before the year 2000.

Course Duration

SSG offer this course over two-hours as a classroom or virtual course.

Course Programme

Asbestos Awareness Refresher course programme includes project work to revise the:

  • History, types and properties of asbestos
  • Possible effects on health
  • Locations / identification of possible Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs)
  • Relevant parts of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
  • Types of asbestos surveys
  • Emergency procedures

Training Certification and Assessment

Delegates will be assessed by a multiple-choice assessment that requires an 80% pass mark. UKATA Certification will be provided on successful completion of the training and is valid for one year as there is a mandatory requirement with UKATA for annual refresher training. 

ID cards can be requested at an additional cost of £3.50 per delegate.
