Asbestos Awareness Essentials Training from OHSS

For those likely to be coming into contact with asbestos in the course of their work, there is a legal requirement for the provision of training in its identification and management. At OHSS, we are the leading and most experienced provider of asbestos training in Ireland and we strive to provide education to everyone concerning the very real danger that asbestos exposure represents.

For this very reason, we have created a comprehensive asbestos awareness training course that we regularly hold at our Dublin offices. Places on these courses can be booked privately, but they can also be attended on an open basis when necessary.

The official name of the course is the “Asbestos Awareness Training & Low Risk Handling Course” and it is an extremely successful one for a wide range of professionals that may come across this most hazardous of materials in the course of their daily working life.

Those who stand to benefit from asbestos are many and varied and include:

  • Building surveyors

  • Quantity Surveyors

  • Architects

  • Demolition Workers

  • Ground Workers

  • Roofers

  • Plumbers

  • Electricians

The course has been compiled in accordance with the regulations set down by the new HSA rules on ACM abatement and the management Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations - which contain the official rules requiring training for all who deal with it.

Whichever way you look at it, asbestos is arguably the biggest occupational hazard of the modern era. Despite this, many employers, local authorities and organisations have been unable to spot ACMs and it is frequently inadvertently encountered. This not only endangers life, but also breaks the law and can lead to being prosecuted by the H.S.A.

If you would like to book your place on one of our training courses or would simply like to know more, you can call us on 01 6905907. Alternatively, you can find lots of useful information relating to our complete range of services on our website

Remember, as an employer you are the one liable in the workplace if nothing is done and something happens. If your employees aren’t protected - get it sorted!

The alternative just doesn’t bear thinking about.
