Managing asbestos in domestic and non-domestic premises – Buxton, 17 May 2016

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Asbestos – Managing asbestos in domestic* and non-domestic premises.

17 May 2016

This one-day course gives you the knowledge to manage
asbestos in non-domestic premises to the standards required by
Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR
2012). The course information is also applicable to
the management of ‘domestic premises’, such as landlords’
duties for rented accommodation.

Many people now dying from asbestos-related diseases are
tradesmen – people who work on and maintain buildings. Also,
building operators and their management systems are under
increasing scrutiny from enforcing authorities, their own staff,
and the public.

CAR 2012 places a duty to manage asbestos on anyone who has
control over the maintenance and repair of non-domestic
premises. In practice, this means all workplaces that may
contain asbestos. Whilst no duty under this regulation falls
on operators of rented domestic premises, the same standards are
useful in ensuring proper management.

Training approaches include presentation, case studies and the
practical use of risk assessment and management tools.

  • The health effects of asbestos
  • Dutyholders and their responsibilities
  • Asbestos legislation and guidance
  • The extent of asbestos-containing materials in buildings
  • Commissioning and understanding asbestos surveys
  • Assessing risks and formulating a management plan
  • Managing minor work with asbestos
  • Commissioning and scrutinising asbestos removal firms
  • Communication plans for asbestos management

Anyone with duties under Regulation 4 of CAR 2012 – Management
of Asbestos in Non-Domestic Premises. People have duties if
they are responsible for repair or maintenance of non-domestic
premises or access to them. This can include employers,
self-employed people and building owners. The course is also
suitable for landlords with similar responsibilities for
managing risks from asbestos in rented domestic premises.

The course will be run at the Health Safety Laboratory in
the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District
and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester
International Airport.

Details of hotels in the Buxton area can be found at

The cost of this course is £425 per
person (includes course notes, lunch and refreshments).

* ‘Domestic’ refers to landlords of domestic premises and not to
people in their own homes.
