Asbestos Awareness Training

Asbestos Awareness Training & Custom On-site Training Asbestos Course

Asbestos Awareness Training (AAT) is essential for workers who may come in contact with materials potentially containing asbestos in their workplace.

Hazmat Plus can conduct comprehensive Asbestos Awareness Training and other customised WHS training on-site or in our offices to ensure your company complies with WH&S legislation and protects employees and community members from risks associated with asbestos.

Many companies require staff to carry out asbestos testing training before commencing employment and in some cases to work on specific job sites. Please note, Hazmat Plus is not able to provide ACT workers with AAT.

We provide training in major regional hubs and cities across the eastern coast of Australia.

How long does an asbestos course last?

The asbestos course includes identifying asbestos containing materials, legislation and regulations, risks and health effects, management plans, testing and removal. Many companies require staff to undergo a course in asbestos awareness before commencing employment. 

Who needs asbestos awareness training?

Many companies require asbestos awareness training before workers are allowed to commence employment. Completion of an asbestos course is essential for workers in the construction and building industry, as older buildings can potentially contain hazardous asbestos materials. Asbestos awareness keeps everyone on-site safe, as well as in the surrounding community.
