General Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos may be found in any building constructed before the year 2000. ABP’s General Asbestos Awareness course offers a basic introduction to asbestos found in and around buildings and workplaces.

Our Asbestos Awareness course is delivered to staff who may disturb asbestos as part of their normal work. The course is designed to enable all staff including maintenance and/or management to do their work safely and prevent unnecessary exposure to asbestos. This course can be tailored specifically to meet the client’s requirements.

Since 2007 we have trained over 3000 delegates in General Asbestos Awareness, at all levels from Managing Director to hands-on maintenance staff. Training can be given at either your venue or at our training centre in Millbrook, Southampton. ABP Associates Ltd is registered with IATP and BOHS.
