Asbestos Awareness in 2018

2 Jan 2018

Asbestos Awareness in 2018 There are stringent laws in place in Ireland that requires any employee that could come into contact with asbestos in the course of their work, to receive training to protect themselves and their colleagues. At OHSS Safety Consultants, we are THE most experienced asbestos training provider in Ireland and we offer regular training in asbestos awareness.

The dangers of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) are well known and very real and we work hard to ensure that everyone likely to encounter this hazardous substance really understands the risks and knows the correct steps to take to minimise risk to health.

Regular & One-off private courses

The training we offer can be taken as part of our periodic open course offering or on a private basis, which can be booked at a time suiting your business commitments. The 1 day course in
‘Asbestos Awareness & Low Risk Handling’ is very popular and is suitable for a number of different trades:

Building Surveyors
Quantity Surveyors
Demolition Workers

Whichever way look at it, asbestos is a potential killer and one of the biggest threats to life in the occupational sphere in existence. Any building built before the late nineties may contain ACMs.

Our asbestos awareness course is comprehensive and highly practical, those taking the course will know:

Basic techniques used in asbestos removal
How to identify the different types of asbestos and where they might be found
The health consequences involved in asbestos exposure
What an asbestos survey is and why it is so useful
All about basic techniques involved in a risk assessment
Why clearance assessments are conducted
What PPE is and how it is used
How to remove friable asbestos

To book yourself or your employees on one of our courses for 2018, you should head over to our website or give us a call on 01 6905907.

If you think you may have asbestos in your business premises, it is imperative that you take action to protect not only yourself, but also your employees by making sure they are fully aware of the dangers of asbestos and how to spot them.
