Asbestos for Architects & Designers

Asbestos for Architects & Designers

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Each year thousands of people fall ill and die due exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry until the year 1999.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self-employed and duty holders and cover all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may encounter or disturb asbestos.

Target Audience

Architects or Designers who are likely to encounter Asbestos containing materials in the workplace
