About the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training Online

Asbestos is an extremely dangerous substance often found in older buildings where it was used for insulation and fireproofing. Seeing that it can cause serious health problems, such as mesothelioma, the use of asbestos was banned in 1999 but is still present in many older buildings.

Under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, if you are working in an environment where you are likely to disturb asbestos materials then you must be aware of, and fully-trained in, the dangers and correct safety practices.

UKATA training is universally recognised as being the industry standard and this Asbestos Awareness Course Online is a valid and convenient method.

Our UKATA Asbestos Awareness Online Course is a two-hour course that will meet all of your needs and ensure that you are appropriately educated before working with asbestos, ensuring your and your colleague's safety.

Once you successfully complete the UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training, you will receive a downloadable certificate which is valid for 12 months.

Please note that this course is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of asbestos; it is not suitable for preparing students to work with Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).
