Category A Asbestos Awareness Training

By Licensed Specialists

Fibre Safe provide (Cat A) Asbestos Awareness courses for employees safely working around asbestos, and additionally how to safely remove low risk asbestos when they cannot possibly work around it.

These courses and training programmes are utterly essential to any company and its employees when the potential of working with or around asbestos is present. A Cat A asbestos awareness course is a requirement of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, for any person who may come into contact with asbestos.

What is A (Cat A) Asbestos Awareness Course?

Category A  Asbestos Awareness Training centres around working in an environment where asbestos is present, focusing on how you can take safe measures to prevent you from disturbing asbestos while working.

This is an introductory course to safely working around asbestos, the health effects and the potential issues that can arise from working in these environments, particularly once asbestos is disturbed. Additionally, companies and employees will gain a clear and concise understanding of the legalities of working in an environment where asbestos is present.

What Does (Cat A) Asbestos Training Include?

What does asbestos awareness training include?

We created a customised course that will enable your staff to safely work in a building or area in which they are likely to come across asbestos. The course is presented by experienced members of the asbestos industry and not general health & safety consultants.

Therefore during training, we are able to answer any technical questions that arise, and where necessary give a hand on demonstration of any techniques needed or industry knowledge required.

Why Is Asbestos Awareness Training Important?

There is still a worrying number of companies that do not understand the legalities of working with or handling of asbestos containing materials. Clients need to be clear enough to make educated decisions on scenarios that involve the material, and the potential hazards should be considered at the forefront of those decisions. There is no better way to garner a good knowledge base on how best to handle asbestos than one of our Fibre Safe asbestos training courses.
