If you are a business owner, then you should know that asbestos awareness training in Chester is now a legal requirement. Providing your employees with education about asbestos is both beneficial and necessary. In the UK, the ‘Duty to Manage’ act requires employers to protect all of their employees from being exposed to asbestos. The legal duty placed on employers is in the form of instruction, information and training. Where can you find such training programs?
In Chester, asbestos awareness training courses are available from Fibre Safe. Their asbestos course is compliant with the requirements set forth in the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012 & ACOP L143. Courses taught by Fibre Safe are ideal for groups of 15 individuals and can be undertaken at your office location or at their venue. Current law requires all employers to provide mandatory training to all employees who might be at risk for becoming exposed to asbestos fibres while at work. Examples of employees at risk include tradesmen and maintenance workers. These professions are more likely to make contact with asbestos fibres on a property. If training at Fibre Safe’s venue or at the office is not feasible, they can provide one-on-one training in your living room. The cost of this training is slightly higher however the benefit is that you get personalised attention from the instructor. He or she will visit your home and provide you with the required skills and information. The training for both types of delivery modes will culminate in an asbestos awareness certificate. This is usually issued on the same day as the training. You and your employees are required to achieve a passing mark demonstrating sufficient knowledge of the topic. Upon successful completion of the training, two copies of the certificate will be issued: an electronic one and a paper copy.
