Non-Licensable Work with Asbestos for Groundworkers

Non-Licensable Work with Asbestos for Groundworkers

This new course will assist delegates to meet legal obligations when undertaking works on presumed or known contaminated sites and provide an awareness of the types, condition and visual images of what can be found below ground level.

This course is aimed at any persons who may encounter asbestos containing materials during their day to day work activities whilst undertaking ground work activities. This could include site investigation engineers, utilities installation and maintenance engineers, ground works operatives, including ground drilling and manual excavations, fencing installation, on site remediation and waste disposal, or any other persons likely to disturb and carry out work on asbestos containing materials as defined in CAR 2012 and JIWG CAR-SOIL 2016.

Course timings are as follows:

The course duration is 1 day^, with the following course duration times:
09.00am - 4.00pm. This course is offered as an in-house option.
Please note you MUST have undertaken asbestos awareness training in the previous six months.

NB: The course duration for this training reflects the implementation of the UKATA Category B Syllabus, implemented 1st September 2014. Originally Category B course durations were one day, which included the asbestos awareness element. It has been identified that the training requires more emphasis on practical and thus more time to cover the training thoroughly. UKATA have set down two duration timescales for this course, as below:

B1) Initial training with NO previous asbestos awareness training undertaken; Course Duration 1 ½ days - Contact us

B2) Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training (within 6 months); Course Duration 1 day (evidence will be required prior to attending this one day course)

If you have not attended a UKATA Asbestos Awareness course in the past six months, please contact us for more information on how to obtain this. We can offer this face to face at our approved training centre (duration ½ day) or alternatively online via our approved online asbestos awareness training course.
