Asbestos awareness training should be given to employees whose work could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos or who supervise or influence the work. The Regulations’ Approved Code of Practice recommends that a refresher should be undertaken at least once a year.

In particular, asbestos awareness training should be given to those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied construction trades where it is foreseeable that asbestos containing materials may become exposed during their work. This includes, but is not limited to:
