Asbestos E-learning – EL14 / 15

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands 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

“This will give me new and refreshed ways of working.  The practical equipment demonstrations and group work were most helpful.”

Why do our customers choose us?

Acorn Health and Safety e learning online trainingWe recognise that e-learning is a cost-effective training method, and is becoming an increasingly important part of many organisations training and development activities, which is why we now offer a selection of e-learning courses to complement the classroom-based learning we offer on our open courses.

We have consciously chosen a provider whose course is accredited by the Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) and we like the fact that the training is presented using a blended approach.

We offer 2 e-learning asbestos courses:

  • Asbestos awareness
  • Asbestos for architects and designers

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction 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 disturb asbestos.

E-learning can complement face to face training.  For example, a trades business may opt for a face-to-face asbestos training session initially and then refresh those skills in year two by using an e-learning training course.
