Armco Asbestos Consultants have scheduled their next Asbestos Awareness and Works with Non-Licensed Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) training session for Friday, 22nd February 2013 at Bury Business Centre, Kay Street, Bury, BL9 6BU.
The half day Asbestos Awareness training is mandatory for anyone whom works on a property built prior to the year 2000. Armco’s Asbestos Awareness course educates workers on the history of asbestos, what asbestos looks like and, when and how asbestos was used in building. The attendee would be taught how it identify asbestos and the correct procedure to follow to deal with asbestos correctly.
The full day Works with Non-Licensed ACM’s training is made up of the ½ day Asbestos Awareness and is then followed by an afternoon session covering remedial works and removal of non-licensed ACM’s. Various asbestos products are considered low risk and therefore non-licensed, such as asbestos cement, floor tiles and texture coating. The materials still harbor some risk and therefore those undertaking such removal or remedial works must be trained in working with such ACM’s. This training is applicable to those whose work will knowingly disturb asbestos containing materials.
This training would enable those trained to undertake the work outlined in the HSE publication “Asbestos Essentials” and therefore be considered competent contractors in the removal or repair of low risk non-licensed asbestos. The training covers the following points:
· How to make suitable and sufficient assessments of the risk of exposure to asbestos;
· The control limit;
· The appropriate choice and use of RPE and PPE;
· Decontamination procedures;
· Work which requires an HSE license;
· Emergency procedures;
· Waste handling procedures.
The training is provided by fully qualified and friendly professionals and at a very competitive price. Contact the Armco office on 0161 761 4424 for further details.
