The course will assist delegates to meet their legal obligations by providing them with an explanation of the properties of asbestos and its effects on the health of individuals, the types, uses and the visible manifestation of asbestos in soils and the understanding and interpreting soil reports. The course will also highlight the general procedures that need to be followed in the event of an emergency and how to avoid the risks from ACMs in soil.
To provide delegates with: –
- The theoretical skills to undertake work on sites (brownfield and greenfield sites) which have been identified as having asbestos containing materials within the soils; or in which asbestos containing materials have been identified (i.e. from previous construction or demolition operations or previous pipe bursting operations or repairs on asbestos cement water mains in which the ACMs have been left on site).
- An understanding of the appropriate action that must be taken in the event of non-notifiable and notifiable asbestos containing materials being identified/recorded within the soil analysis report; and or being identified on site in accordance with the CAR 2012.
- An understanding of the emergency procedures that must be implemented in the event of ACMs on site accidentally escaping their control
Who should attend?
Any persons responsible for managing sites in which the soil analysis report has identified asbestos containing materials within the soils on site; or where ACMs could be encountered within the soils on site. This would include, but is not limited to the following – The CDM 2015 Duty Holders i.e. clients, client’s agent, the principal designer, the principal contractor, HSEQ managers/advisors (including any consultants fulfilling these roles and responsibilities), and any contractor’s employees responsible for excavations, on-site remediation, site investigations and the disposal of waste from site.
