Asbestos Awareness

Phoenix’s asbestos awareness training course will ensure that staff know how to work safely with Asbestos, keeping your business's practices in line with The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

What is Phoenix's Asbestos Awareness Training?

According to the HSE, more than 50 percent of UK homes are likely to contain asbestos, and it is responsible for an estimated 5,000 deaths per year in the UK. As such it is vital that employees know how to safely work with asbestos, and it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure they are working safely under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

The purpose of our asbestos awareness course is to help employers fulfil these legal requirements and enable employees to work safely. This online course also covers the emergency procedures to be followed whenever asbestos fibres are disturbed or released.
