Asbestos Awareness

Where there is any risk of asbestos exposure, employers have a duty of care to educate their employees on the dangers of asbestos. In fact, Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) makes it a requirement that employers ensure their staff have undergone suitable asbestos awareness training so that they are aware of the potential dangers they may face and the procedures they must follow.
