Asbestos Awareness - Identifying, Managing & Controlling Asbestos in the Workplace

Online Training Course

Greencap offers its own proprietary online asbestos training course, designed as a cost-effective introduction to asbestos in line with the WHS /OHS Acts across Australia.*

This course is designed to equip managers, workers and occupants with necessary knowledge to reduce the risks of exposure to asbestos. It is a non-accredited course designed for trades, maintenance, property managers or anyone at risk of encountering asbestos or may need to work with small amounts of asbestos.

If you or your employees work at commercial or residential sites (particularly constructed prior to 2000) where asbestos is likely to be present, this course will assist you in identifying materials likely to contain asbestos and teach you the safety requirements for working with asbestos.

* Non-Accredited. The Asbestos Awareness training is not suitable for work in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT)

"With Greencap donating a portion of every enrolment, not only will you be increasing your awareness of asbestos, but you will also be helping us to reduce the ongoing impact of asbestos on the community. Thank you for your support." - Jo Morris, Reflections Director & Co-Founder
