ASBESTOS NON-LICENSED WASTE AND CIVIC AMENITY SITE PERSONNEL
The syllabus will assist delegates to meet their legal obligations when undertaking Non-Licensed or Notifiable Non-Licensed Asbestos work on Waste Management and Civic Amenity Sites where asbestos wastes are knowingly or inadvertently received. The syllabus also addresses the requirements and procedures for safely undertaking Non-Licensed and Notifiable Non-Licensed Asbestos Works at such sites.
Any persons who may be required to undertake or manage Non-Licensed or Notifiable Non-Licensed work with asbestos containing materials which arrive at waste management sites by design or as inadvertent or unauthorised content of other wastes. Others who may also need to attend this course may include but not limited to:
Machine drivers and maintenance engineers and operatives who would be specifically involved in Non-Licensed or Notifiable Non-Licensed Work including the decontamination of machines which have come into direct contact with Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs), operatives who become involved in the handling of packaged wastes or the cleaning up of asbestos waste spillages at any location on such sites, any managers or other personnel who will need to access locations, where there may be asbestos spillages or significant unauthorised inclusions of ACMs in general waste, for the purpose of undertaking work assessments and subsequent preparation of Risk Assessments and Plan of Work Method Statements in accordance with the provisions of regulations 6 and 7 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
The duration of the training can be divided into three categories; the chosen category should be determined by undertaking a training needs analysis on individual delegates attending open courses or discussions with the client at the time of booking to establish the correct course and duration for the training.
NLW WM1) - Initial training with no previous asbestos awareness training undertaken: The expected duration for this training will be 1 ½ days or a minimum of 9 learning hours, this training must include the asbestos awareness element as laid down in UKATA document A0022.
NLW WM2) - Initial training with previous UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training within 6 months of the start date. Verification of the asbestos awareness training must be undertaken by the training provider and must be no more than six months from the date of the asbestos awareness training, should the asbestos awareness training fall outside of this then NLW WM1 training will be required. The expected duration for this training will be 1 day or a minimum of 6 learning hours.
NLW WM3) - Refresher training having undergone NLW WM1, NLW WM2 or NLW WM3 above within the last 12 months. Previous training certification should be verified to ensure that this was undertaken within the last 12 months and also by a UKATA Training Provider, failure to demonstrate this will require NLW WM1 training as above. The expected duration for the refresher training will be determined by the training provider carrying out a training needs analysis and should be no less than 3 learning hours.
NB: Once a full UKATA course has been successfully completed, thereafter the UKATA refresher course is based on TNA.
If the TNA proves that the delegate has retained sufficient knowledge from the initial full UKATA course, then they are able to undertake the appropriate UKATA refresher year on year.
An effective TNA is the key to delivering the appropriate training and is a UKATA Training Provider’s proof that a refresher course is sufficient.
