The Control of Asbestos Regulations imposes duties relating to air testing and the cleanliness of asbestos enclosures and work areas.
There is therefore a need for analysts and similar specialists to have the knowledge to inspect and test asbestos works that have been carried out to ensure they meet the correct standards required by HSG248.
The qualification consists of four units:
- Unit One: Asbestos types, uses, health effects and legislation
- Unit Two: Theory of air sampling, fibre counting and clearance procedures for asbestos analysts/ project managers
- Unit Three: Practical air sampling, fibre counting and clearance procedures for asbestos analysts
- Unit Four: Use of decontamination units and Class H vacuum cleaners
Staff equipped with this qualification will help organisations and companies meet the accreditation criteria for ISO 17025 (testing bodies).
