New Asbestos Safety Training in 2021 from OHSS Safety Consultants

At OHSS, we’re experienced in all aspects of asbestos removal and disposal consultation and we frequently offer training in accordance with all known asbestos regulations. We’re here to tell you that for 2021 we’re offering Asbestos Awareness and Low Risk Handling training at a time and date to be decided - subject to Covid restrictions.

Whilst the Coronavirus is still causing havoc around the world, asbestos disposal still carries a huge risk to human health for anyone working near it. Let’s take a look at what the training will include.

By the end of the course, those attending will understand:

  • The various asbestos types and where they lurk
