Asbestos Awareness for Architects & Designers Online Course

IATP and ROSPA Approved

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thou-sands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regula-tion 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, in-struction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may come into contact with or dis-turb asbestos. This online course provides information about the legislation governing asbes-tos in work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.
