UK Asbestos Training Association - UKATA
About the CPD course
Asbestos in soils awareness training is required to be given to employees whose work could foreseeably expose them to asbestos. In particular; it should be given to all people employed on projects to redevelop brownfield sites and or sites that have previously been occupied by industrial buildings that have been demolished; where it is foreseeable that their work will disturb the soils and ground on site and may expose them to ACMs that may be present within the soils on site. Exemption from this requirement would apply only where the employer can demonstrate that work will only be carried out on sites in which the soils are free from risk of airborne fibres.
UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) set the standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards. UKATA Members train in excess of 200,000 tradespeople each year. The Association actively promote asbestos awareness, to include the dangers of working with the substance and health threats associated.
