Asbestos and Legionella awareness: Training for a safer environment

Asbestos and Legionella training courses are designed to help property companies and building stakeholders improve safety and staff competence. These courses equip professionals with the essential knowledge and skills to identify, manage and mitigate the risks associated with these hazardous substances, helping to improve safety, compliance and the protection of property assets.

Why awareness matters

The U.K. Health and Safety Executive (HSE) underscores the importance of asbestos and Legionella awareness training as essential constituents to overall risk mitigation. Providing staff with regular asbestos awareness training may reduce the risk of accidental asbestos exposure in buildings and ultimately protect the lives of building users and contractors.

Past litigation cases in the U.K. highlighted a lack of competency and insufficient Legionella awareness training that contributed to organizational failures in preventing Legionnaires' disease outbreaks.
