Managing Asbestos - UK and Europe
ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT TRAINING
Under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, there is a duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. Under this regulation "the dutyholder" refers to:
every person who has, by virtue of a contract or tenancy, an obligation of any extent in relation to the maintenance or repair of non-domestic premises or any means of access thereto or egress therefrom; or
in relation to any part of non-domestic premises where there is no such contract or tenancy, every person who has, to any extent, control of that part of those non-domestic premises or any means of access thereto or egress therefrom,
and where there is more than one such dutyholder, the relative contribution to be made by each such person in complying with the requirements of this regulation will be determined by the nature and extent of the maintenance and repair obligation owed by that person.
There is a duty to manage NOT just a duty to have an asbestos survey
Who should attend?
This course is designed for those who are involved with or responsible for the management of asbestos within premises. This is primarily those who have maintenance and repair responsibilities for the premises through a contract or tenancy. It is also for those who are owners, and sub-lessor of premises which they lease out, managing agents, and others such as architects, surveyors and facilities managers etc, who have a role in the management of premises or who may have relevant information about them. The course can be tailored to the organisations that own and manage rented domestic housing stock such as local authorities and housing associations; who will have to apply the duty to the common parts of housing.
What is the objective of this course?
We will ensure all delegates receive the necessary knowledge and practical experience to carry out their duties as a dutyholder. Each delegate will leave the course with the knowledge of how they should assess whether their premises contains asbestos; how to assess the risk from asbestos; and how to take action to manage the risk from asbestos in the form of how to develop an asbestos management strategy.
