Until the 1990's most buildings contained Asbestos, and even until the year 2000 Asbestos may be found in some buildings. It was considered a 'miracle ingredient' and was added to increase the strength and durability of products.
Gradually the dangers of asbestos began to be realized and we now have the legacy of millions of buildings with asbestos products in their structure. Disturbing the asbestos, either during maintenance work or structural alterations can be dangerous, both for those who undertake the work and for those who are based in the same buildings.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations originally came into force on the 13th November 2006, and have subsequently being updated on the 6th April 2012. The regulations require mandatory training for anyone who is liable to be exposed to asbestos fibres at work.
This eLearning module will provide awareness for those individuals who may disturb Asbestos in their everyday work or those who work in a building where Asbestos could be present.
