Asbestos Awareness Training in Ireland

Whenever there is a likelihood that employees may come into contact with asbestos in the course of their work it is advised that they receive asbestos awareness training. This training should be provided by professionals to ensure employees are aware of the dangers of asbestos and are provided with the correct information to allow them to deal with asbestos safely and in the appropriate manner.


So by the end of their training not only should such employees know the current regulations that exist in Ireland regarding asbestos, asbestos abatement, and asbestos removal and disposal, they need to know why they’re adhering to these rules.
