Asbestos Awareness

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations it is a requirement that ANYONE who is likely to come into contact with asbestos is trained to minimum standard to a syllabus laid down by the HSE on an annual basis. Exemption from this requirement can only be applied when it can be proved that the working environment is completely free from asbestos containing materials.

Purple Training Solutions can provide this training given by qualified trainers holding the BOHS P402 qualification as a minimum at their base in Yeovil, Somerset or at your location across the South West**. This is completed with a Purple Training Solutions certificate. Accredited certificated training is available with YHC Hire (our parent company).
