Asbestos is a health and safety hazard that can be found in ceiling tiles, floor tiles, roofing shingles, eaves, pipes and in showers. Ensure you are safe and ensure the safety of your team working with asbestos removal.

This short course will teach you to identify and dispose correctly of non-friable asbestos-containing materials found in structures or soils to minimise risk in the workplace. You will then also learn how to instruct and monitor workers on a job site to ensure that they are correctly and safely removing asbestos containing materials.

Ideal for anyone working in the building and construction industry.
