What is asbestos?

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 it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000. Tiny fibers can be inhaled and cause lung tissue scarring, shortness of breath, it can stick to your clothes and working tools. You can be in the presence of asbestos without realising you're putting yourself and others at risk due to the lack of training.


Who needs asbestos training?

 The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos-containing materials. Every employer MUST ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos.
