JAX provide extensive training to help identify and deal with cases of asbestos. Employers should ensure that anyone who is liable to disturb asbestos during their work, or anyone who supervises those employees, has the knowledge and training so that they can work safely and without risk to themselves or others.
The three categories of training course we provide are:
Non-licensable work with asbestos (Category B)
Licensable work with asbestos
Refresher Training Courses
We also provide refresher training in all 3 categories to ensure asbestos knowledge is maintained in your team.
Asbestos awareness training helps workers avoid carrying out work that will disturb asbestos. There is no legal requirement to repeat awareness refresher training every 12 months, but we do recommend it to ensure standards and safety are maintained.
Licensable and non-licensable training should be refreshed every year, or more frequently if work methods change, the type of equipment used or the type of work changes significantly or if gaps in competency and/or safety are identified.
