Asbestos and Lead Product Awareness Training

Asbestos and lead products are present in many Australian buildings and pose a significant risk for workers in the construction industry. 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 staff 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 face to face 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.

  • History of asbestos and lead use in Australia
  • Types of asbestos and lead products and where they were used in the building and construction industry
  • Health effects of asbestos and lead products
