About Our Asbestos Awareness Training for Architects and Designers

Asbestos, widely considered the most dangerous building material ever used, continues to claim lives each year due to exposure. Despite its ban in 2000, the construction industry extensively utilised asbestos. 

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR), employers, employees, self-employed individuals, and duty holders are all subject to regulations concerning work involving asbestos-containing materials.  

Regulation 10 mandates that employers provide adequate information, instruction, and training to employees at risk of asbestos exposure, encompassing maintenance workers and individuals likely to encounter or disturb asbestos.

In addition to providing candidates with information about the risks associated with working with asbestos, the asbestos awareness training for architects and designers course will cover topics such as recognising asbestos-containing materials, understanding where it was commonly used, methods to minimise risks, and the relevant legislation pertaining to working with asbestos. 

To assess their understanding, each module concludes with multiple-choice questions that candidates must answer correctly in order to pass the course. Candidates will have the opportunity to review their answers at the end of each module before submitting their final responses, and they will be given three attempts to achieve the required passing result. 


Target audience

The Asbestos Awareness training for architects and designers course covers the same subjects as our 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.


Being aware of the products that are likely to contain asbestos and the risks associated with them give workers and supervisors the information they need to avoid work that may disturb asbestos.

The course is approved by leading industry bodies CPD and the IATP.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.

Further progression

There are a wide range of other health and safety courses available in the eLearning suite that are relevant to the same industries as these courses.
