Who is it for?
All staff of HSE Licensed Scaffolding companies are required to receive basic asbestos training and subsequent annual refresher training. This is detailed in Chapter 4 of the Licensed Contractors’ Guide.
To enable HSE Licensed Scaffolding companies to meet their requirements to provide adequate and appropriate training to employees working in environments where asbestos is believed to exist.
This course covers the full syllabus requirements, as stated in Chapter 4. They are:
Health risks and avoidance of exposure;
Use of PPE, RPE and emergency decontamination procedures;
Scaffolders roles and responsibilities.
In response to demand, we now offer the following optional practical training modules:
Full decontamination procedures;
RPE maintenance and inspection.
The 2 additional practical units will increase the training to a further day and will include use of live decontamination exercises. Costs available upon request.
In addition, we can build in extra modules to incorporate training for Supervisors and/or Managers. They would cover the basic scaffolders training above but also the following modules:
Roles and responsibilities.
If you are looking to train a number of employees then this course may be more cost effective delivered in-house. All you need to provide is a suitable venue and refreshments (and equipment when hands-on practical training is undertaken). We can also organise and deliver bespoke training courses to meet all your training needs including training delegates for whom English is a second language.
