UKATA sets standards in asbestos training and ensures that its members meet those standards. Legislation is continually monitored and the Rules of Membership reviewed frequently in order to maintain the recognised UKATA standard of excellence.
It is legal requirement that all who may come across asbestos in their day to day work have been provided with asbestos awareness training. Furthermore, if they intentionally work on asbestos they must have had appropriate training specific to the tasks they will undertake.
Any organisation that allows builders or maintenance personnel onto their premises should ensure that they have evidence of asbestos awareness training as a minimum. UKATA provides a quality standard for that training.
When asbestos is to be worked upon deliberately, using a UKATA member to provide that training ensures that the training provider has the facilities, knowledge and experience to properly undertake that training.
