Asbestos Awareness Training Course

Did you know that each week approximately 8 joiners, 6 electricians and 4 plumbers die from asbestos-related diseases?

Asbestos was extensively used as a building material in the UK from the 1950’s through until the mid-1980’s. It was used for a variety of purposes and was ideal for fireproofing and insulation. Any building built before 2000, houses, factories, offices, hospitals and even schools can contain asbestos.

Agility’s half day Asbestos Awareness training course ensures that delegates have the correct knowledge when working in environments where asbestos may be present.
