This course will help you and your staff understand your obligations under the Duty to manage asbestos regulations in light of recent changes to asbestos surveys made by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Who would benefit:
anyone involved in managing asbestos including health and safety managers, facilities managers, environmental managers and property managers and is suited for people with a wide range of experience
The changes make it even more important that everyone involved in environmental compliance and managing buildings fully understands their legal obligations.
The course is designed to help building mangers, FMs and others responsible for health and safety and environmental compliance to keep pace with the changes and understand how it affects them.
S. A. Associates has developed a training course covering the key issues. Not only does it cover the changes to the regulations, it includes a "back to basics" refresher on asbestos and its management, an area which has traditionally caused some confusion.

• Understanding asbestos
• Asbestos in buildings
• Health effects upon the body
• UK legislation Introduction to the "duty to manage" and executive responsibility
• Introduction to asbestos surveying and the HSG264
• Assessment, which will include formative/summative activity throughout
