It is legal requirement that all who may come across asbestos in their
day to day work have been provided with asbestos awareness training.
If they will intentionally work on asbestos they must have had appropriate training specific to the tasks they will undertake.
Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto
their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos
UKATA (United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association) provides a quality standard for that training. When asbestos is to be worked upon deliberately, using a UKATA member to provide that training ensures that the training provider has the facilities, knowledge and experience to properly undertake that training.
We are pleased to announce that all OBS staff have successfully passed UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training.
