Asbestos Awareness Training 

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used.  Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos, which was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.  The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons and cover all work with materials containing asbestos.   this course comprises 4 modules. 

Asbestos Awareness AD (for architects and designers) 

This course covers the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness course, with an additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers working with buildings that may contain asbestos.  It provides information about the legislation governing asbestos in work, and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers. 

 Abrasive Wheels Training 

 This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels, or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work.  There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance.  Applications range from hand grinding to disc cutting; they can be used at all stages of a work process, for making preliminary cuts and scores in materials, or for fine polishing and finishing.  This course covers the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, storage and handling and much more. .....  

 Working at Heights Training 

This course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height.  The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches.   This is because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it’s not how far you climb, but how far you can fall.   All working at height situations are covered by health and safety legislation.   This course covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the regulations, the hierarchy of controls, assessing risk and much more.
