Non-Licensable Asbestos Work

This level is required for everyone who is knowingly going to disturb any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s), to ensure the correct control measures, precautions and procedures are in place, in order to prevent the spread of asbestos. This includes demonstrations on safe operation of specialist plant and equipment as well as a selection of suitable PPE & RPE.

Regulatory compliance

Awareness Sessions for Senior Managers or Dutyholders.

This is required in order to understand their legal obligations for statutory compliance and the duties they are required to carry out. To minimise an organisation’s risk of prosecution of compensation claim it is critical that these regulations are understood and complied with. Being unable to prove compliance could mean you remain liable.
