- the properties of asbestos and its effects on health, including the increased risk of cancer for asbestos workers who smoke
- the types, uses and likely occurrence of asbestos and ACM’s in buildings and plant
- the general procedures to be followed to deal with an emergency, e.g. an uncontrolled release of asbestos dust into the workplace

This course can be conducted at your site and will serve as an introduction to the hazards of asbestos and how to mitigate those risks.
Training is also offered as an online, self-paced, non-licensed course that can be done in the comfort of your home or office and produces a .pdf certificate on completion. This certificate can then be used to show a prospective or current employer that you have made an investment in your knowledge around the asbestos risk.
