UKATA Duty to Manage Asbestos

Your organisation has a legal duty to manage asbestos and ensure the safety of all affected by your works. This course will show you how to do this in a practical way to reassure all concerned. You will find this course invaluable in giving your staff the tools to enable your business no matter what size, to carry out its duties in respect of asbestos legislation and compliance.

Who needs this qualification? 

This course is directed at those who manage non-domestic premises; the people with responsibility for protecting others who work in such premises, or use them in other ways, from the risks to ill health that exposure to asbestos causes.

Why is this training important?

The revised Approved Code of Practice ‘ACOP L143 Managing and working with asbestos’ contains updated information about the requirements to manage asbestos under regulation 4 CAR 2012. The course includes asbestos awareness but focuses on compliance and how to manage asbestos containing materials within your premises.

Course content

• Awareness and training requirements for staff and contractors
• HSG264 the surveyors guide
• Understanding asbestos surveys
• Emergency procedures
• Asbestos legislation
• Surveyor training and accreditation
• Survey planning
• Managing asbestos in buildings

On completion of the course each delegate will receive a duty to manage asbestos reference manual and certification. This course can be delivered at the client’s venue, or via remote ‘Zoom’ video conferencing, with a ratio of one trainer per 12 delegates.


‘This was possibly the best, most informative and broad ranging asbestos courses I have attended, the trainer include a great range of examples and experience to contextualise issues.’ Ashley Harmal, Chief Officer, Christchurch & East Dorset County Council
