Young workers in South and East Yorkshire given asbestos training

14th March 2013 | Health and Safety Signs

Young employees in South Yorkshire and East Yorkshire's construction industries are being targeted with a number of courses to alert them to the hazards of asbestos.

The sessions are to be held in Sheffield, Doncaster, Hull, Beverley and Goole and are organised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and its industry partners to emphasise the importance of asbestos training.

HSE Inspector Medani Close, who specialises in the construction industry for HSE in South and East Yorkshire, said: "Many young tradespeople believe that because asbestos is no longer used in building work, it no longer poses a threat to them. But that simply is not true and is a potentially dangerous assumption to make.

"Asbestos was widely used in domestic, commercial and industrial premises for decades before it became illegal, and its presence is still widespread - and will be for many years to come."

The courses are approved by the UK Asbestos Training Association and start on March 20th in Sheffield.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801556371-ADNFCR
