Course Description 

With asbestos being the biggest single cause of work- related deaths, with around 4,000 reported each year in the UK alone, knowing what steps to take if you come across asbestos is vitally important.
Because it is often mixed with other materials, sometimes it can be difficult to know if you're working with asbestos or not. However, if you work in any building constructed before the year 2000, it is likely that it will contain asbestos in one form or another.
