Non-licensable Work with Asbestos Including NNLW

NON-LICENSABLE WORK WITH ASBESTOS INCLUDING NNLW

Introduction

This syllabus sets out the guidance issued by the UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) for the provision of non-licensed asbestos training as contained within the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR). The document provides the syllabus for the training along with guidance on the minimum content of all courses. Trainers can offer bespoke or tailored training for the remainder of any training session but the core content MUST be adhered to.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 10 requires every employer to ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to their employees who are or who are liable to be exposed to asbestos, or who supervise such employees.

Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 10, Paragraph 128 - 131 specifies the training that is required for those working with non-licensed asbestos containing materials as defined by CAR 2012 Reg 3(2). This is also further stated in the Health and Safety Guidance Document HSG 210 – Essentials Task Manual, Fourth Edition.

Occupational Relevance

Any persons carrying out non-licensed works with asbestos containing materials, as laid down in CAR 2012, Reg 3(2). This would normally include, but is not limited to, trade operatives such as demolition workers, construction workers, general maintenance staff, electricians, plumbers, gas fitters, painters and decorators, joiners, shop fitters, plasterers, roofers, heating and ventilation engineers, telecommunication engineers, computer installers, fire and burglar alarm installers, architects, building surveyors and other such professionals or any other persons likely to disturb and carry out work on asbestos containing materials as defined in CAR 2012.

Duration

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.

B1) 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 MS001.

B2) 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 B1 training will be required. The expected duration for this training will be 1 day or a minimum of 6 learning hours.

B3) Refresher training having undergone B1, B2 or B3 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 B1 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.
