National Asbestos Association announces free awareness training dates.
The UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA), has announced the dates of its free asbestos awareness training courses, as part of its national campaign to highlight the dangers of asbestos.
Members of the national Association who are involved in the ‘Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe’ campaign, which takes place during September and October this year, have offered over 3,500 hours free asbestos training to those who attend in an attempt to further raise the profile of the importance of the correct handling of asbestos.
“It is imperative that any tradesperson who may come across asbestos during the course of their work is aware of the legal requirement and furthermore knows how to protect themselves and those around them,” said Craig Evans, General Manager of the UK Asbestos Training Association. “Asbestos Awareness training is the absolute minimum requirement for anyone who may come into contact with the fibres although this level of training does not permit them to work with any forms of asbestos.”
The Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe campaign is predominantly aimed at individual tradespeople and small companies who may not otherwise have previously known about, or received such training.
