Who is this course for?


Duty to Manage Asbestos 2016

This course is aimed at Duty Holders and Appointed Persons under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, the Duty to Manage Asbestos in Non-Domestic Premises. There are no specific qualifications stipulated for an asbestos dutyholder or appointed person under the regulations, the requirement is for the person(s) undertaking the role to be “competent”. Competency is a culmination of training, knowledge and experience. This course provides theoretical training on the Duty to Manage, in compliance with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and successful completion of this course is suitable for dutyholders and appointed persons to satisfy the “training” requirement. In order to demonstrate competency, further knowledge and experience is required, such as knowledge of the premises that are being managed, experience in applying the training and knowledge in real life situations. 

For this reason, it is recommended by NATAS that new dutyholders and appointed persons, work with and alongside other experienced people for a period of time of 6 – 12 months (non-specific) in order to gain suitable experience before taking on full responsibility for themselves. This can be achieved by working within a team of other competent persons within an organisation, such as an established asbestos management team or, by engaging the services of external competent consultants, such as NATAS to work with you and offering mentoring.

As a fundamental element of a person’s training and knowledge of asbestos matters they should also undertake asbestos awareness training. For persons who require asbestos awareness training they can take the NATAS Asbestos Awareness course. 

This course alone does not provide training for physical work with asbestos containing materials (ACMs). This course does explain the requirements for training for different types of asbestos work, including the taking as samples, however this course alone does not qualify you to work physically with asbestos containing materials (ACMs), for which additional training is required. Information on required training is included within this course.

Please refer to the NATAS website for further information on all courses provided.
