The use of all asbestos containing materials was not banned until 1999. This means any building built or refurbished before the year 2000 could contain asbestos.

Any worker liable to disturb asbestos while performing their normal everyday work is required to be trained. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to those employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos during the course of their work.

This training is for those persons who are liable to disturb asbestos while carrying out their normal everyday work, or who may influence how work is carried out, such as:

  • General maintenance workers 
  • Electricians 
  • Plumbers 
  • Painters and decorators 
  • Plasterers 
  • Construction workers
  • Roofers 
  • Shop fitters

  • Joiners

  • Gas fitters 
  • Heating and ventilation engineers

  • Telecommunication engineers 
  • Fire/burglar alarm installers 
  • Computer installers

  • Architects 
  • Building surveyors 
  • Demolition workers

Please note: There are other occupations who are liable to disturb asbestos in addition to those listed in the above table.
