Training for Small Builders and Tradesmen
If you are a small independent builder or self employed tradesman then Asbestos Safety Training can benefit you. People such as electricians, joiners, plumbing & heating engineers and insulation specialists that work on old domestic/residential premises built between 1900 & 1999 may be at risk from Asbestos. These older buildings may have Asbestos Containing Materials within and without suitable working practices can be hazardous!
