“Very informative and useful course, didn’t realise just to the extent asbestos was used. Always been told it was a nasty product, but this really opened my eyes!”
— D Royle, Builder

What is Asbestos?


Asbestos has been attractive to the construction industry because of its physical strength, thermal and electrical insulation properties, non-combustibility and resistance to chemical erosion.

Blue and brown asbestos are the two most dangerous forms and have been banned in the UK since 1985. White asbestos has been banned from general use since 1999. Although it is still used for a small number of specialised applications.

Awareness training


It is staggering the number of stories and enquiries we receive where asbestos is still needlessly disturbed or people potentially exposed because of people who have not received the appropriate awareness training.

Now, through the Be Aware programme our supporters have a banner to deliver free awareness training to provide the needed information to help prevent harm.

These courses are open to all, trades and the public, to help try and raise the awareness of asbestos further and in turn prevent needless asbestos exposure.
