Asbestos Training and Surveys

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.

the course is very easy to use with simple clear information.

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.

I have had lots of positive feedback from those who attended, it was far more than just a tick in the box for completing some training – all the staff both new and experienced left the course having learned something and perhaps most importantly looking at the hazards and risks of the workplace as their responsibility and not that of someone else!

Chris kept the course interesting and engaging and everyone enjoyed the day despite the challenging nature of the course! I would definitely recommend Chris and Award Health and Safety for the IOSH Working Safely Course – having previously tried cheaper on-line courses, the face to face training and support ultimately worked out more cost effective as all attendees passed first time and no expensive retests were needed!! Thank you Award Health and Safety

Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.

Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood.

Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!

I would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude for the professional and swift manner in which you have updated our company’s safety requirements.

As the Health & Safety Director for the company I am heartened to see that over the last 2 years we have not had a single accident on site. Not even a minor incident!

This is due in part, to our safety officer attending your varied training courses, but mainly it is because of your excellent input to our safety regime and your friendly but firm approach to the men on site.

I have recommended your services to others and will continue to do so. Many thanks.

‘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.

Award Health & Safety Sponsor IATP Recognition Award

Award Health & Safety Ltd sponsored an IATP Award on Saturday the 26th January 2013. The Recognition Award went to Mavis Nye for her tireless work, since being diagnosed with Mesothelioma herself, bringing to the world’s attention how this disease affects ‘normal’ families.

Asbestos poses a serious threat to health. It is estimated that up to 500,000 non-domestic buildings in the UK contain some form of asbestos and thousands of people die each year as a result of asbestos exposure.
