THSP Risk Management are continuing their support for UKATA’s Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe campaign by providing free UKATA asbestos awareness training courses to the local community. This asbestos training course is being held today in our Bedfordshire office.
We have supported this campaign for the past few years as it is important to raise awareness of the dangers associated with exposure to airborne asbestos fibres through unknowingly coming into contact with asbestos materials.
Asbestos has been and will remain a hot topic in the construction and building industry for a long time and rightly so – it causes around 5,000 deaths a year, and can be found in most buildings built before the year 2000 (houses, factories, offices, schools, hospitals etc.).
With around 20 tradesmen dying a week as a result of past exposure, it is vital that companies train their employees to be aware of asbestos and the dangers that come from exposure to airborne asbestos fibres.
THSP offer a range of UKATA accredited Asbestos Awareness training courses, these can be delivered at any of our training locations in Bedfordshire, Essex and Central London as well as at your premises as an in-house. Give us a call on 03456 122 144 to discuss how we can help you educate your employees and protect them from this lethal substance.
