UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training

UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training Durham

In accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulation (CAR 2012) mandatory Asbestos Awareness Training is required to be given to all employees whose work could expose them to asbestos.


This can include anyone who drills a hole in a wall to the caretaker of a building. Anyone involved in the building industry or installing equipment should receive Asbestos Awareness Training.


We’re able to come to your premises to train your employees on site. Our courses are run by experienced staff who will be able to tailor the course syllabus to the nature of your business and your employees needs. This can include additional elements to the standard Asbestos Awareness Training that could be unique to your sector.


For example; a recycling company may occasionally come across small amounts of asbestos in skips. Standard Asbestos Awareness Training is not sufficient but we can provide a bespoke addition to the course that will cover additional training needs for any given Asbestos related requirements.


Also for example a roofing company may need specific training for removal of Asbestos roofing sheets again an additional bespoke element for this can be included.


The Asbestos Awareness Training lasts for half a day with a short test at the end. A UKATA certificate will be issued on completion of the course.


We can also supply site cards at an additional cost.



Our trainers are all working Asbestos Surveyors, so they can give realistic answers to any questions you choose to ask.
