The e-learning courses are interactive and include activities, scenarios and quizzes to engage learners and keep them interested. Every course has a final assessment which is designed to prove that the delegate has reached the required level of knowledge, as well as assisting with the employers’ legal duty to ensure staff have been adequately trained.

Courses can be accessed on computer, tablet or mobile devices. It is not necessary to complete the courses in one session, as the system bookmarks where learners got to so that they can continue later from where they left off.

Once the course has been completed, a confirmation of results can be printed or saved as proof of completion. This can then be kept on record or in personal files as evidence of suitable training.

If required, the courses can be tailored to suit the organisation. This may be as simple as including your logo, or you may wish to go further and include relevant photographs, videos, or even attach your forms/templates to the course. There are no limits to what can be achieved by our team of UK based in-house e-learning developers.

The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012 makes it clear that employers must give staff sufficient information and training before they work around asbestos.

Protecting workers from the dangers of asbestos is vital. According to the HSE, it’s possible to find asbestos in buildings constructed or refurbished before 2000. More than 50% of UK homes are likely to contain asbestos, and it is responsible for an estimated 5,000 deaths per year in the UK.

The purpose of our asbestos awareness online course is to help employers fulfil their legal requirements and enable employees to work safely. Employers have a duty to provide adequate control of staff exposure to harmful substances in the workplace; our online course provides an awareness of the risks for workers likely to come into contact with asbestos. The e-learning course also covers the emergency procedures to be followed whenever asbestos fibres are disturbed or released.
