Asbestos is a mineral that occurs in nature. It was once seen as a material with incredibly useful properties, such as versatility, heat resistance and tensile strength. Due to this, asbestos can be found in a large variety of applications, from fire-proof vests to schools and commercials buildings. We now know this substance and its fibres are incredibly harmful and are a known cause of mesothelioma cancer.

For this reason, it has been banned in over 50 countries, and Asbestos Awareness Training has become a legal requirement.

We offer Asbestos Training Courses that can help you identify and prevent this danger. After all, there are still around 2000 asbestos-related deaths in the UK, a figure that we seek to reduce! So, what can you expect when you choose BOSS Training:
