UKATA Asbestos Courses

It is estimated that over two million work places contain asbestos, which remains the single biggest cause of work related deaths in the UK. Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos awareness training. UKATA provides a quality standard for that training.
