The Asbestos Awareness course provides participants with knowledge to assist in addressing asbestos issues in the workplace. It is difficult to know if a material contains asbestos just by looking at it. Our asbestos awareness training is essential for any person, working in an environment where asbestos containing materials may be present. Our course is delivered face to face, by our experienced asbestos assessors. Our clients include builders, government, councils, water, gas and power utilities.
