Asbestos Awareness Category A Training £30+VAT
In the UK, more than half a million non-domestic premises and houses are still thought to contain some form of asbestos.
Figures from the Health and Safety Executive show that around a quarter of the 4,000 or so people dying from asbestos-related diseases each year in Britain are tradespeople, such as joiners, electricians and plumbers. This is why Asbestos training is a legal requirement; so you can avoid the risks.
