Asbestos is one of the biggest occupational health issues and kills around 5000 workers each year, which is greater 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.
It is a mandatory training requirement under Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations for all those exposed or liable to be exposed to Asbestos, or those who supervise or manage such employees. This could include, but is not limited to, carpenters, plumbers, heating and ventilation engineers, maintenance workers, cable installers, shop fitters, demolition operatives, construction workers, painters and decorators, architects or surveyors. It does not train you to work with asbestos containing materials (ACM's).
