We're looking for expressions of interest... Asbestos Awareness for Tradespersons Course.

We've been offered the chance to host this training course but a minimum of 10 people is required to make it viable for the trainers to come and deliver it. We have four, so we're looking for another 6 or more (if a lot more, we'll organise a couple of sessions).

Course cost is $125 + GST for five hours of training. No doubt, essential CPD for some professionals.

Did you know that up to 3800 different building products used in NZ homes & commercial buildings between 1950 & 2000 contain asbestos?  It wasn’t banned until 2016.

Looking for an asbestos awareness course near you? Envirotech offers asbestos training courses throughout New Zealand – including the IP402 – to help you comply with Regulation 17 of the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016, & help those at risk of asbestos exposure to be more conscious of their surroundings.

Our classroom-based asbestos training courses are delivered by qualified experts with internationally recognised asbestos qualifications and extensive expertise.

Our Asbestos Awareness for Tradespersons course is essential for those who will, or may, come into contact with asbestos as part of their daily work, as well as individuals whose responsibilities include the management of asbestos in their buildings.

This course does not provide education on how to work with any forms of asbestos, but focuses on how to work safely on site (from an asbestos point of view), and how to avoid the risks. We’ll be covering what asbestos is, associated health hazards, current legislation, emergency procedures, personal protective equipment (PPE) and respiratory protective equipment (RPE) requirements.

By the end of this course, attendees will be able to:
  • Discuss the origins of asbestos and where it is found
  • Outline the health hazards caused by asbestos and its routes of entry into the body
  • Understand relevant legislation
  • Identify the locations/products where asbestos containing materials are likely to be found
  • Be aware of the requirements for PPE and RPE for asbestos
  • Understand personal decontamination procedures
Attendees will be issued with a certificate of completion in Asbestos awareness.

There is the possibility of holding courses at The Business Hive in Oamaru, but we need to gauge interest first as the trainer would be coming down from Christchurch – date yet to be decided. 

Cost would be $125.00 plus GST per person – 5 hours duration 

Please contact Alex @ The Business Hive on 022 699 5292 or email alex@thebusinesshive.co.nz to register interest.
