REHIS Southern Centre Event - Asbestos in the 21st Century

Asbestos is a very emotive word. It is not unusual for quite important decisions to be made on an improper understanding of asbestos risk. This course will review modern concepts of real and perceived risk, allowing a proper, rational, decision making process to be undertaken. The course will also discuss the classification of Asbestos Containing Materials and give an overview of associated working procedures.

Aims
- To recognise the difference between Real and Perceived asbestos risk;
- To be able to classify asbestos containing materials;
- To understand the differences between licensed work, non-licensed work and notifiable non licensed work.
