This online asbestos awareness training course has been designed to be accessible and easy enough for those who have minimal knowledge of asbestos. You can take the course online using an interactive learning portal that can be accessed through our client portal. The course is important because it teaches those taking the course about how to reduce the amount of harm caused to those who may be exposed to asbestos-containing materials.
For those working or residing in residential or commercial buildings, knowing if there are asbestos-containing materials anywhere in the building is vital to reducing harm to yourself and others. To minimise the hazards posed by working with or around asbestos is first to be aware of asbestos. Here at Fibresafe NZ, we want you to be prepared and to know about the harmful effects of asbestos, which is why we offer asbestos awareness courses online alongside our asbestos services.
Our asbestos awareness online course provides a great foundation level of knowledge for anyone who wants to become an asbestos assessor in the future, and it is great for anyone who is undertaking work involving or potentially involving asbestos. You will learn about common asbestos containing products, what it is that makes asbestos hazardous to human health, safe working practices and PPE gear, and the history of asbestos.
