Environmental Inspection is committed to keeping people safe from asbestos, and as such, we strongly believe in training as a way to reduce risk.
Training could be important to your employees if:
- They are working on properties that may present risks of exposure to asbestos.
- They are working in buildings that are known to contain asbestos.
- They give advice to property professionals.
Remembering that any building that was built before 1999 could contain asbestos, and previous surveys may not be comprehensive (because they didn’t need to be), the value of up to date training is clear.
Why is asbestos dangerous?
Find out why asbestos is dangerous, and which types of asbestos present the biggest danger.
The extent of the danger will depend upon the friability of that material you have, and its surface treatment.
How to identify asbestos risk
Training delegates in the identification of risk, the kinds of materials to look out for, and what to do in each of a range of scenarios. Some materials can be removed by category B trained persons where others must use a licensed asbestos contractor.
