Asbestos Risk Awareness (AU)
Alarmingly, there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. Inhaling its fibres can lead to severe lung damage, including cancer. This course is about being aware of asbestos in the workplace. It covers the identification and management of asbestos, including asbestos that is found in its natural state (naturally occurring asbestos).
If your organisation carries out work around asbestos, or if there’s a chance that employees will be exposed to it, then it’s essential for everyone to know how to manage the risks.
