Asbestos Awareness Training

Intertek offers asbestos awareness training in New Zealand for those who may come into contact with asbestos.

At Intertek we provide an asbestos awareness training program. The program is intended for those persons who are liable to come in contact with or disturb asbestos in day to day activities. The asbestos awareness program is also aimed at those who influence how work is carried out, such as maintenance workers, electricians, plumbers etc. Asbestos can be deadly so asbestos training is needed to avoid risk, protect yourself and carry out the task in a safe manner.

Our Asbestos Awareness Training program can be tailored to the individual needs of your business and can be delivered at a time that suits you. We can even deliver the program out of normal working hours or on the weekend should this be required.

The Asbestos Awareness Training Program can be taken at our Ruakaka office or at a venue of your choice. Each delegate will receive a certificate of attendance. The certificates do have an expiry date as the current guidelines recommend refresher courses at regular intervals.
