Asbestos for Architects & Designers

Asbestos Awareness Training for Architects & Designers

This course covers the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness course with an additional module
aimed specifically at architects and designers working with buildings that may contain asbestos.

Itprovides information about the legislation governing asbestos in work and outlines the
responsibilities of architects and designers.

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Every year thousands of
people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction
industry right up until the year 2000.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons
and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states
that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to
employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others
who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
