Asbestos is a known Class I carcinogen, which as a result of extensive use and poor management processes has resulted in contamination of soils, and made ground notably including construction and demolition debris.

Work which disturbs or is likely to disturb asbestos is subject to the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012. Regulation 10 of CAR 2012 sets out the requirements for employers to provide the correct level of information, instruction, and training (ITT) to employees carrying out work with asbestos. There are three main types of ITT:

  • asbestos awareness;
  • non-licensed work with asbestos including NLLW
  • licensable work with asbestos.

This course provides generic ITT for those carrying out NLW and notifiable non-licensed work (NNLW) with asbestos in soil, construction and demolition debris as required by the CAR 2012. It assumes that those signing up for the course will have completed an asbestos in soils awareness training already.

As with all NLW training courses, this will take delegates 6 to 7 hours to complete, however, this can be accessed at a time to suit and may be completed in several shorter sessions. Videos are included to cover more practical elements of the course, such as donning personal protective equipment (PPE) and respiratory protective equipment (RPE).
