Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn in the duty to manage asbestos course?

From the course, you will learn about the legislation, how to develop an asbestos management strategy, risk assessments and management plans.

What is The Duty to Manage Asbestos?

The duty to manage asbestos is the responsibility of the duty holder to protect others who live or work on premises from the dangers of asbestos. As stated in regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, it is the duty holders’ responsibility to look out for and monitor asbestos-containing materials and presume other materials contain asbestos until proven not. It is also their responsibility to assess the risk of the asbestos material, prepare a plan for how the risks will be managed and provide transparent information to anyone who is liable to work on or disturb them. 

It is also a duty for others to cooperate as necessary with the duty holder to complete the requirements.

Why is Asbestos so Dangerous?

Asbestos was first imported into the UK in the 1860s. The properties of asbestos made it an ideal material for a wide range of uses such as shipbuilding, steam engine and pipe insulation, fire protection etc.

By the mid 1900’s asbestos was used in a wide variety of building products and was used extensively in the building and construction industry. Its use peaked between the 1950s and the mid 1980s.

Although asbestos in all its forms was finally banned in 1999 there are still millions of buildings and facilities including industrial, commercial and domestic, which contain asbestos materials. Therefore as you may work in buildings where asbestos may be present or you might encounter asbestos during the course of your work, you will need to know what you can do to reduce your risk of exposure.

Whilst asbestos can be found in many products and materials in buildings it does not pose a threat to health unless the asbestos containing materials are disturbed, damaged or are in poor condition. 

Asbestos is made up of tiny fibres which can be released when asbestos containing materials are disturbed. These airborne fibres can be inhaled and cause asbestos related diseases. Asbestos exposure generally refers to exposure to airborne asbestos fibres.

Asbestos is the largest single cause of occupational ill health (in other words asbestos is the biggest killer in the workplace).The number of people who die each year from past exposure to asbestos is now more than 5000 in the UK alone and that figure is expected to increase to possibly 10,000 by 2025 when the death rate is expected to peak.

Currently, on average 20 tradesmen die each week from asbestos related disease, this includes plumbers, electricians, joiners and other trades.
