*****IMPORTANT BEFORE BOOKING****
All delegates MUST be able to demonstrate that they have attended an Asbestos Awareness training course which satisfied the requirements of Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the supporting Approved Code of Proactice L143 "Managing and working with asbestos", and achieved an examination pass mark.
The Asbestos Awareness training course may have been delivered online or face-to-face and may be evidenced by means of a certificate and/or a signed and authenticated copy of the individual's formal Training Record. If the Asbestos Awareness training course has been taken more than 12 months prior to booking on this NLW course, the certificate and/or Training Record must be accompanied by documented and verifiable refresher training that has been delivered to the candidate in the last 12 months.
If you do not have this evidence or have not already attended an Asbestos Awareness Course you can book on the Asbestos Awareness course that immediately precedes the NLW course.
Attainment of the learning outcome for the NLW qualification will be assessed by a multiple choice examination consisting of at least 30 questions under exam conditions.
Candidates will be required to achieve a score of at least 22 out of 30 (73%) in the examination. Failure to achieve this will result in the candidate being required to re-take the examination under exam conditions on the same day. If a candidate further fails the second attempt then they will be required to re-sit the course in its entirety.
In addition to the asbestos awareness training, employees whose work will reasonably foreseeably or knowingly disturb soil and C&D materials contaminated by asbestos, and which is defined as non-licensed work (NLW) or NNLW, should receive additional task-specific information, instruction and training. Employees may include those who undertake ground investigations practitioners, construction/remediation contractors and materials recycling contractors.
'Work with asbestos' is defined in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and includes work which removes, repairs or disturbs asbestos, work which is ancillary to such work (ancillary work) and supervising any such work (supervisory work). For soil and C&D materials that may be affected by asbestos contamination, work which removes or disturbs asbestos may include:
• demolition of above-ground and subsurface structures;
• land remediation work, including asbestos removal;
• excavations and earthworks;
• ground improvement operations;
• installation of foundations;
• production and use of recycled aggregate from demolition arisings;
• ground investigations and surveys;
• monitoring activities, including air sampling;
• maintenance operations that could disturb asbestos, e.g. installation of underground utilities, erection of fencing, landscaping activities.
The Non-Licensable Work (NLW) with asbestos, including Notifiable Non-Licensable Work (NNLW) training, is aimed at workers whose work will require them to disturb asbestos-containing materials and therefore will need this level of information, instruction and training. This includes but is not limited to:
- geoenvironmental consultants, land surveyors and other such professionals.
- ground investigation workers;
- construction workers;
- construction plant operators;
- land remediation contractors
- waste processing and recycling plant operators.
The Non-Licensable Work (NLW) with asbestos, including Notifiable Non-Licensable Work (NNLW), training covers the following:
- how to make suitable and sufficient assessments about the risk of exposure to asbestos in the ground
- safe work practices and control measures, including an explanation of the correct use of control measures, protective equipment and work methods
- selection and appropriate use of protective equipment
- waste handling procedures
- emergency procedures
- relevant legal requirements
- circumstances when non-licensed work may be notifiable (i.e. NNLW)
To provide delegates with the knowledge, understanding and skills to undertake work in ground and C&D materials that are contaminated with asbestos, which may be classed as NLW. Successful completion of the course will allow competent persons to undertake this work in accordance with Regulation 10 of CAR 2012 and CAR-SOILTM.
This course qualifies towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD), a certificate of attendance will be provided on completion of the training.
