Asbestos Awareness eLearning course

Our Asbestos Awareness online course is a general awareness course for people working in social care to understand the essentials about asbestos. Workers who plan to carry out work that will disturb asbestos require a higher level of training.

HSE recognises the use of eLearning as a viable delivery method for asbestos awareness training, provided it satisfies the requirements of Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the supporting Approved Code of Practice.

  • What is asbestos
  • Where might asbestos be present
  • Why is asbestos harmful
  • What to do if you discover or disturb asbestos
  • Control of Asbestos Regulations and how they apply
  • CQC regulations and asbestos
  • Asbestos registers and management plans
Our Asbestos Awareness course has been designed specifically for people who want to know more about general Asbestos awareness. Whilst it provides focus for people working in social care, it will also be useful to a wider audience of people who would like to know more about these topics.
This course will take 20 minutes to complete.

I found some of the questions very interesting, covered topics that have never been discussed before in training. They made me think and question myself, excellent course.
