Asbestos and Lead Product Awareness Training

Asbestos and lead products are present in many Australian buildings and pose a significant risk for employees on construction sites. Appropriate training is needed for awareness and management, even if staff are not tasked with removing or handling it.

Asbestos and Lead Product Awareness Training will prepare construction workers who may come into contact with ACM (Asbestos Containing Materials) and Lead. It helps managers and workers recognise and avoid exposure to dangerous situations, and comply with legislative and licensing requirements for removal.

This short three hour course includes theory and practical demonstrations using safely packaged asbestos and lead samples. Together with visual learning and discussions this course equips participants with the skills and knowledge to manage the risks of Asbestos and Lead products in the workplace. Training can be delivered to company groups on site or via Zoom.
