JB Asbestos Management Ltd
Here at JB Asbestos Management, we specialise in asbestos awareness training, to enable you to take the necessary precautions before works commence and to stop work if there is doubt about any material found within the work area.
Asbestos awareness training is essential for anyone who may potentially disturb asbestos during the course of their work and for anyone who supervises such people. In particular, workers may disturb the fabric of the building such as tradesmen, installations, refurbishment and demolition works. Our training covers all parts required by the HSE and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012).
Non-licensed asbestos removal training is designed for those who carry out minor work with asbestos containing materials. Our asbestos removal training provides the framework for non-licensed asbestos works; it includes a hard copy of the HSE publication “Asbestos Essentials Task Manual” which includes details of approved guidance for job specific tasks. It would become your main reference point for carrying out non-licensed asbestos works.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 states that you must be competent to work on non-licensed asbestos. The training alone does not make you competent; competency comes from receiving the training and following the approved guidance every time.
Asbestos management training is provided to those responsible for premises where Regulation 4 “The Duty to Manage” applies. Our first-class asbestos management training takes a step-by-step approach to forming a suitable asbestos management plan to meet Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. The training shows how to use the guidance and tools produced by the HSE to help you meet your responsibilities.
We are members of the IATP to ensure our training conforms to all HSE requirements as set out in Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, by annual external audit. As Independent Asbestos Training providers we work closely with the HSE to represent its affiliates. We provide feedback on asbestos training, have input on the development of new legislation and to improve standards throughout the industry.

We provide advanced refurbishment and demolition surveys is to locate and quantify all suspect ACM’s prior to refurbishment or demolition. It is a fully intrusive, destructive survey of an unoccupied property or area. Usually no risk assessments are carried out as all ACM’s will be removed to allow the refurbishment or demolition to take place. With refurbishment and demolition surveys, it is essential for the client and surveyor to have a common understanding of what is expected and how the findings will be used.
