REGULATION 4: THE DUTY TO MANAGE
DUTY HOLDERS RESPONSIBILITIES

We designed this asbestos course in Chester for managers, supervisors or duty holders in mind. Those who manage premises and are responsible for the safeguarding of those who live or work in such premises from the risks associated with exposure to asbestos.

We equip you with the information and guidance on the Duty to Manage asbestos in non-domestic premises (Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012), so you can be fully compliant and safe, maintaining a building containing asbestos.

WHY ASBESTOS TRAINING IS ESSENTIAL

For Anyone Working with the Hazardous Material

DIY work is becoming more and more common in all aspects of personal and business projects. With the rise in online ‘How To’ guides and YouTube video walkthroughs, complex projects can look like straightforward tasks, but unfortunately for most things, this isn’t the case, especially not when working with hazardous materials like asbestos.

Recently, a report in the Hull Daily Mail reported that unskilled workers had attempted to remove asbestos tiles armed with nothing more than hammers at a local shop building. While this may have saved time and money, the costs are genuinely lethal to the people who undertook this task. In this particular case, workers took down a total of 1000m2 of the asbestos board, meaning that the exposure to themselves and anyone in the vicinity would be extensive. They are all likely to see some health impacts from this in the future.
