Asbestos Awareness Training Course

Asbestos Awareness Training Course

Asbestos has been used for thousands of years. In the UK, until the end of the last century, it was widely used as a building material. However, it is now known to cause serious lung diseases. Asbestos can no longer be incorporated into new buildings or renovations.

This ME Learning course explores the history of asbestos use, and where it can be found currently. It also explores the dangers of asbestos, and what to do if you need to work with it.

But having the right fire safety awareness training can save lives – both yours and others around you. Knowing how to prevent a fire and what to do in the event of one might be the best knowledge you ever acquire.

Moreover, by law, your employer is required to provide fire safety training courses.
