Surprisingly, Asbestos can be found in any building that was built before 2000, (whether that be houses, factories, offices, schools or hospitals) and they account for around 5,000 deaths a year. Ensuring you and your staff are trained to recognise the different types of Asbestos and to understand control measures is not only a matter of procedure, but can save lives.
Asbestos is caused when materials that contain Asbestos are disturbed or damaged, then released into the air and subsequently inhaled causing serious diseases. Asbestos is particularly dangerous as you will not be affected immediately but, it often takes a long time to develop and once diagnosed, it is often too late to change anything. Although this sounds dangerous - the purpose of our asbestos DVD is to train your employees on how to recognise the different types of Asbestos, to understand the control measures and identify the risks. Our Asbestos training DVD therefore is an important tool when looking to keep staff safe and keep them away from the dangers that are associated with it.
Our 15 minute DVD trains on how to recognise the three main types of Asbestos, understand the dangers of exposure, be aware of the different forms of Asbestos and where is it used, the importance of managing Asbestos in your environment, high and low level risk hierarchy and understanding how to protect yourself.
