Asbestos awareness in Altrincham is necessary to protect your staff. If your work building was built before 2000, it is possible it may contain asbestos. While an asbestos survey should have been carried out and an asbestos management plan put in place, it is still wise to continue with asbestos awareness training for your staff. The asbestos management plan should have a detailed risk assessment. This will deal with any potential risks associated with asbestos and must highlight what needs to be done if it becomes necessary.
Training your staff about the dangers of asbestos is of great importance. In Altrincham, asbestos awareness includes training courses. It is the legal obligation of business owners to ensure that their staff are informed and aware of the risks involved with the exposure to asbestos. The ‘Duty to Manage’ means that you as the employer have the responsibility to protect your workers from exposure to asbestos. This can be done by providing information, instruction and training. To ensure that your staff are aware and that you fulfil your legal obligation as an employer, speak to Fibresafe about the awareness training we offer.
