Asbestos is the UK’s biggest workplace killer.
Over 5,000 people die in the UK each year due to asbestos related diseases.
It is legal requirement that all who may come across asbestos in their day to day work have been provided with asbestos awareness training.
Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos awareness training as a minimum.
Organisations should be aware that HSE will not hesitate to take appropriate enforcement action against those that fall below the required standards.
Despite this, employees are still not receiving the appropriate training!
UK Asbestos Training Association “UKATA” sets standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards.
