Asbestos Awareness Training (UKATA)
Asbestos is one of the largest occupational health issues and still kills around 5000 workers
each year, which is greater than those who die through road traffic accidents in the UK.
However, asbestos is not just a problem of the past. It can be present today in any building
built or refurbished before the year 2000.
This is a mandatory training requirement under Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos
Regulations for all those who are exposed or liable to be exposed to Asbestos or those who
supervise or manage such employees. This could include but not be limited to carpenters,
construction workers, engineers, plumbers, heating and ventilation engineers, maintenance
workers, shop fitters, demolition operatives, construction workers, painters and decorators,
architects or surveyors. It does not train you to work with asbestos containing materials
