Asbestos can kill people and cripple businesses. We can train your staff in asbestos awareness. We can also carry out asbestos surveys for you, so that everyone is protected from this lethal material.
If you have premises where asbestos may be present, you need a documented Asbestos Management Plan. If you are a contractor employing workers who carry out trades on site, your staff need externally audited asbestos awareness training.
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.
Electical Contractors Association South Central Region
A huge thank you to Chris for the great job he did on the abrasive wheels course on Thursday! I was really impressed with the amount of detail he covered in such a short space of time and he really made it interesting. I was pleased that he covered details regarding the law and the HSE which is important for everyone in the company to know. The practical application at the end was excellent as he really tested everyone on their knowledge. It’s always important to ensure people not just listen to the details but actually understand why they are doing things a certain way so that part of the course was so crucial.
Chris also asked me to try my hand at the practical application which was extremely useful, if a little nerve wracking! It gave me a much better understanding of the importance of how the machines work and how best to keep everyone safe.

They are very knowledgeable with all aspects of site construction health and safety requirements, and provide a prompt and friendly service.
Authorn Limited Surfacing Contractors
a beneficial course, more than just a tick in the box as it brought up a few things we weren’t aware of and weren’t currently checking 100%. Delivered by an instructor who knew his subject, delivered his content without waffle and not ‘death by power point’. Good practical/interactive demos to make the students think rather than just ‘stare’

‘Common Areas’ Asbestos Surveys for blocks of flats
In blocks of flats there is a need to have an asbestos survey to cover the common areas (such as stairs and corridors) under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. The common areas will also need a Fire Risk Assessment. If you are a Block Manager or the freeholder of a block of flats we can carry out both Fire Risk Assessments and Asbestos Surveys for you, enabling you to meet your legal obligations.
