Our course has been designed for construction managers, building managers, engineers, maintenance workers, caretakers and other tradesmen that may come in contact with asbestos during their daily activities.
Our online asbestos awareness training course offers an explanation of the hazards and health effects of asbestos exposures and identification of common types of products that contain asbestos.
