Asbestos Safety for Tradespeople
This course is designed for tradespeople who, during the course of their work, could potentially or unknowingly disturb asbestos containing materials (ACMs) causing asbestos fibres to be released into the air. Completion of this course does not in any way enable you to work with asbestos containing materials (ACMs).
Course duration: 30 minutes
On successful completion of this course you should be able to:
• understand what asbestos is
• outline the health effects of exposure to asbestos
• recognise potential asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the workplace
• outline the steps to take to protect yourself from exposure to asbestos.
CPD points: Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points are available from Construction Industry Registry Ireland (CIRI) for this course. One hour of learning will contribute to one CIRI CPD point. Any construction company wishing to avail of the CIRI CPD points must record them as learning outcomes on their own training matrix which then needs to be presented annually to CIRI at the point of renewal.
