Asbestos Awareness, Health and Safety at Work and Working at Height Training Package FAQs

  • What are the Asbestos Safety Standards in the United Kingdom?

    Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, those working in an area where asbestos might be present have a ‘duty to manage’ the asbestos, and this will generally mean a designated person whose job it is to assess risk and deal with the issue should any asbestos be encountered. Generally, if asbestos is present at a site, then it’s very likely to be the case that a licensed contractor will need to carry out the work. The UK’s Health and Safety Executive issues these licenses.

    You can learn more about the dangers of absbestos and why awareness is so important in our helpful guide here.

  • What are the dangers of Asbestos?

    Asbestos poses a danger to human health because disturbing the material causes the fibres to separate and float through the air, where they can be inhaled. Once the fibres are inside your body they cannot be removed, and this can cause several very serious lung problems and diseases.

    You can learn more about the dangers of the different types of absbestos in our helpful guide here.

  • What happens if Asbestos is found in the workplace?

    The presence of asbestos alone should not be a cause for concern. Asbestos only becomes a risk to human health when it is released into the air and breathed in. Duty holders - those who are responsible for maintaining or repairing non-domestic premises are required to actively manage any asbestos in buildings.
