Asbestos Awareness Seminar

Have you come across asbestos recently?

  • Asbestos is still present is many New Zealand workplaces, however an increasing number of personnel are not familiar with it
  • There are specific regulations detailing what can and can’t be done with asbestos materials, but do you know where asbestos is at your site?
  • Do your maintenance personnel and contractors know how to recognise suspected asbestos materials, and what to do if they find some?
  • Chemsafety open courses include attendees from a variety of industries – users of similar substances are grouped together
  • Chemsafety’s presenters are chemistry graduates (but we won’t bamboozle you with jargon) with many years experience in undertaking asbestos audits and monitoring across a broad range of New Zealand workplaces

The 2-hour session covers

  • What is asbestos?
  • Why, when and where was it used?
  • Identifying potential asbestos materials
  • Health effects
  • Asbestos legislation
  • What you can and can’t do
  • Safe work procedures
  • Registers and ongoing condition checks

Who should attend?  Health & Safety team members, facilities maintenance personnel, contractors

Where is it held? The session is held in Chemsafety’s seminar room, or at your premises
