ASBESTOS NON LICENSED WORKS – IN HOUSE CERTIFICATE – 1 DAY
PRS can provide registered UKATA Trainer to deliver Working with non-licensed Asbestos Training, which enables your employees to remove non licensed asbestos. Our course is designed to meet the HSE requirements for Category B asbestos Training.
This course will demonstrate, in a practical way, how to protect your workforce when working with or removing non-licensed asbestos. Courses are held at either your own venue or at our Training centre.
Up to 14 delegates are permitted on each course, the content of which will be tailored towards your particular area of work.
Training takes 1 full day and includes practical aspects. Upon completion of the course, delegates with receive a PRS in-house certificate valid for a period of 12 months, in line with HSE guidance.
Our working with non-licensed Asbestos Training covers the following topics:
• Introduction to asbestos
• Legislation and codes of practice
• Selection, care and use of PPE and RPE
• Prevention and reduction of exposure of employees to asbestos fibres
• Asbestos types and uses
• Control limits and air monitoring
• Emergency procedures
• Hygiene and decontamination procedures
• Health effects of asbestos exposure
• Safe working practices
• Waste handling and disposal
• Other workplace hazards
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 prevents anyone from removing Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) unless they have received the correct training, which details how such work should be undertaken.
PRS have prepared a customised course that enables people to remove non-licensable ACM’s. It is designed as an extension to our Asbestos Awareness Training which is a mandatory requirement for anyone likely to be exposed to Asbestos.
The good news is that the training is less expensive than alternative providers and is tailored to the exact requirements of your workforce.
This is particularly useful for people involved in Housing Maintenance, Refurbishments & Demolitions. Instead of having to sub-contract asbestos REMOVAL work to specialist asbestos removal companies, you will be able to undertake certain removal jobs in-house.
