Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos awareness training is legally required for any worker likely to disturb asbestos during the course of their everyday work.

This is to ensure that they recognise asbestos and know what to do.

Since there’s some confusion we thought we’d clarify the point that asbestos awareness trainers don’t need to belong to any organisations. You can work with independent trainers provided they have proved competence and compliance to regulations and legislation through annual Independent Auditing.

Sourcing an asbestos awareness training provider can often appear daunting, however it needn’t be.


When sourcing a training provider check they have an external audit in place. Award Health & Safety is a Member of IATP where auditors details are listed opposite the training provider for openness and transparency.

HSE Training Pages detail the LEGAL requirements for asbestos awareness training.

Award Health & Safety Ltd provides specialised training and is a registered and independently audited member of IATP.

Asbestos Awareness Training can be delivered at the client’s premises or at our own training venue.

Our interactive style draws on delegates’ experience to ensure the training is relevant and memorable.


Asbestos Awareness Training

Duration 1/2 day

Suitable Delegates: those employees whose organisations wish to provide mandatory education and awareness training of asbestos issues to them as required under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

They may have asbestos materials in their workplace or asbestos related activities carried out such as asbestos surveys, remedial clean up or asbestos removal being undertaken on site. Delegates will gain an understanding of how this affects them, what is being done and why.

When it comes to asbestos awareness training for our members we ask for high standards of delivery and professionalism in all aspects. Award Health and Safety always achieve on both counts, and our members receive true value for money year upon year.

I can formally confirm that Award Health & Safety are one of Keir’s preferred deliverers of Asbestos Awareness training within the Keir Southern Region.

I have used them on three projects and found them to be very prompt, diligent and great at delivering what is a mandatory requirement to any person being set to work under all Health and Safety guidance.

Chris at Award Health & Safety has also been a particular source of reliable knowledge on the changing world of asbestos regulations.

Award have also delivered the asbestos awareness message at less formal events for Keir such as our Spring Reception and SHE seminars to a wider audience of professionals and senior managers.

I have no hesitation in recommending them for any work within this vein.
