Asbestos awareness Training

Do you have responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act, to manage and protect everyone in the workplace from the risks of asbestos?

This is for you!

Our Online Asbestos Awareness training is a 3-hour workshop designed for people who need to understand and manage asbestos risks in the workplace. This can include property and facilities managers, project managers and landlords.

It makes sense of the Asbestos Regulations and Approved Code of Practice for the Management and Removal of Asbestos (ACOP), so people who have a responsibility to maintain a safe workplace are better equipped to ask the necessary questions and critique the answers.

It covers:

  • An overview of the Health and Safety at Work Act, the Asbestos Regulations and ACOP
  • The role of representatives of PCBUs with management and control over the workplace to identify and manage asbestos risks
  • The requirements on PCBUs commissioning work involving asbestos vs asbestos-related work
  • The difference between Class A and Class B removal work, and the requirements of each
  • Unlicensed asbestos-related work
  • The role of the independent assessor
  • Air monitoring – the requirements and the options
  • What to look for when engaging removalists and other contractors
  • Easy to follow decision trees
  • Ways to verify the risks are being managed.

Attendees have a better appreciation of the considerations to take into account during the tendering, planning, maintenance, demolition and building aspects of their assignments. Including but not limited to different types of surveys, when they need to be done, who can do what type of work and an appropriate emergency procedure if it all goes horribly wrong!

Doing our part

We have trained people from the Department of Corrections, Spotless, Connetics, Reserve Bank, Government House, LT McGuiness, McKee Fehl Constructors, Holmes Construction, First Security, Advanced Security, sparkies and plumbers, and many other different types of organisation and trades.  Every attendee has commented on how much they learnt, even those who thought they knew a lot!  They’ve also complimented us on our ability to make it not boring!
