Asbestos Awareness Training – HS11
Our asbestos awareness course is aimed at owners, managers and employees of any businesses that might come into contact with, or have a responsibility to, manage asbestos during the course of their work.
“Very competent service helping us see through some red tape, to ensure we understand what it is we must and should do and what other aspects would be good practice”
Why do our customers choose us?
Every week 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related disease. Therefore this training is a must and is of particular interest to anyone working on buildings, particularly those built or refurbished before 2000.
Participation helps organisations to demonstrate compliance with their statutory duties in addition to providing evidence towards SSIP accreditations. It is currently recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that asbestos awareness training is repeated on an annual basis.
Our courses are delivered by knowledgeable and enthusiastic consultants and trainers all of whom hold adult teaching qualifications supported by a professional qualification and considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Teaching 18,000 delegates a year, Acorn Health & Safety offer training to individuals, groups and entire staff teams. We are committed to providing excellent training delivered in a relaxed, yet informative style.

Our 'asbestos awareness' course is just one of over 60 courses we offer. Acorn Health & Safety provides training and consultancy in first aid, fire safety, food safety, manual handling, healthcare training and health and safety.
We can provide a wide variety of accredited or tailor-made courses, these can be ‘in-house’ or ‘open’ programmes.
Our ‘in-house’ course programmes are the most cost effective option if you’ve a number of staff requiring training, and in many cases can be adapted to include reference to local policy, practice and documentation. These courses can be delivered either at any suitable venue or you can hire our purpose-built training centre located in Warmley, Bristol, whichever is best suited to your needs.
We also run a rolling programme of ‘open courses’ which are particularly suited for individuals, organisations that only have a few delegates or those looking to release small groups of staff at a time.
