BOHS P405 Managing Asbestos in Buildings

Aim of the course

Due to laws changing in 1999, all Asbestos importation, supply and use is banned in the UK. But for buildings that were built before 1999, that still contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s), if any work is needed to be done, and there is a risk the asbestos fibres will be disturbed, steps need to be taken and the ACM’s need to be managed effectively and safely.

Due to the risk that disturbed Asbestos fibres can cause, this 5-day course (4 days tuition, 1 day exams) is designed to teach the delegates about the risks attached with ACM’s and overall how to ensure they are managed correctly using the correct tools. The course will also touch on how to overcome the issues presented with ACM’s using practical cases.
