Asbestos Awareness Training - Course Dates

Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos awareness training gives workers and supervisors the knowledge they need to identify and work safely with asbestos or asbestos containing material. The purpose of awareness training is to ensure workers understand where asbestos might be found and what steps to take to stay safe. Training will provide information on:

  • identification, safe handling and appropriate control measures
  • asbestos containing materials (ACMs)
  • naturally occurring asbestos
  • loose fill asbestos (raw asbestos crushed into a fine state and installed as insulation).

If you are an employer or business (or other PCBU), you are responsible for:

  • giving workers appropriate information and instruction about the risks and controls necessary to do their work safely.
  • determining the right  training for each worker.
