Asbestos Training

Our Asbestos Awareness courses are IATP approved.
Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used.
Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely
used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons
and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states
that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to
employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others
who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
Asbestos Courses
1. Category A, Asbestos Awareness
This course covers all areas of asbestos awareness and is designed for anyone who may
come into contact with asbestos in their work. Most commonly, that includes builders,
plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other building related and maintenance trades.
The course consists of 4 modules (listed below) with questions at the end. The modules
cover areas such as recognising asbestos, where it is used, minimising the risks and
legislation about working with asbestos.
You are given the chance to review all your answers at the end of each module before final
submission and you will be given 3 attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 100%.

Module 1 – Properties and Risks of Asbestos Exposure
Module 2 – Different Types of Asbestos
Module 3 – Avoiding the Risks from Asbestos
Module 4 – An Outline of Asbestos Legislation

2. Asbestos for Architects & Designers
This course covers the same subjects as our Category A Asbestos Awareness course with an
additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers working with buildings that
may contain asbestos. It provides information about the legislation governing asbestos in
work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.
The course consists of 5 modules (listed below) with questions at the end. You are given the
chance to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission and
you will be given 3 attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 100%.

Module 1 – Properties and Risks of Asbestos Exposure
Module 2 – Different Types of Asbestos
Module 3 – Avoiding the Risks from Asbestos
Module 4 – An Outline of Asbestos Legislation
Module 5 – Content for Architects and Designers

Legionella Management Training

Current legislation set out by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 along with the HSE’s updated
code of practice known as L8 which was published in 2001, states that Companies and building
owners have a legal duty to manage Legionella.
Our interactive video based training course is aimed at all employers and staff to assist them in
identifying the danger that Legionella poses, as well as covering ways to identify & assess sources of
risk from Legionella in the premises and implement & manage a control programme.
This course explains the background to Legionella, the potential risks associated with water systems
and how these can be prevented or controlled. It helps you to understand the risk that Legionella
poses and helps you develop the systems and working practices you need to stay ahead. It gives you
enough knowledge to get a Legionella control programme off the ground yourself – or make
confident, informed choices when commissioning others to take this on for you.
The course consists of 5 modules (listed below) with questions at the end. You are given the chance
to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission and you will be given 3
attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 70% or higher.

Module 1 – What is Legionella
Module 2 – Risk Areas
Module 3 – Legislation
Module 4 – Risk Management
Module 5 – Water System Monitoring

Food Safety Training

All our Food Safety courses are ROSPA approved.
Food Handlers and their employers have a legal duty to manage Food Safety. These obligations are
set out by a number of EU and UK Laws. These Laws state that food handlers must make sure that
food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold, is safe for human consumption. Failing to follow
food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences.
Training your employees with our online system will go a long way to give them greater awareness
of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose, as well as covering how food safety risks
actually arise and how to control and prevent them.
Food Safety Courses
The Level 1 Awards in Food Safety provide an ideal solution to staff induction training including:

  • new employees with minimal or no prior food safety knowledge;
  • employees handling low‐risk or wrapped foods (category A);
  • front of house employees, such as waiting or check out staff;
  • back of house employees, such as kitchen porters or warehouse staff.

The level 1 food courses each consist of 4 modules. You are given the chance to review all your
answers at the end of each module before final submission and you will be given 3 attempts at each
module to achieve a pass rate of 75% or higher.

Manual Handling Training

Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of
injury at work.
To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were
introduced. The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers.
They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly
including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.
Training your employees with our online system will go a long way to giving them greater awareness
of the dangers that poor manual handling poses, as well as covering safe handling techniques,
practical solutions to manual handling issues and the use of mechanical aids.
The course consists of 5 modules (listed below) with questions at the end. You are given the chance
to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission and you will be given 3
attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 75% or higher.
This course is ROSPA approved.

Fire Safety

Current legislation, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, applies to all workplaces
regardless of the number of employees and requires employers to provide adequate training in fire
awareness for all members of their staff.
Our online fire safety training course is aimed at all employees to assist them in identifying and
reducing the risk that fire presents in the workplace.
All our Fire Safety courses are ROSPA and IFE approved.
