HSM Webinar
Join HSM and HSE on 15 May 2024 at 10:30 (BST) to explore the laws surrounding asbestos, the risk to health and how to safely manage it.
Dutyholders have a legal obligation to manage asbestos in buildings. A dutyholder could be the building owner, landlord for the premises or person or organisation with clear responsibility for the building’s maintenance or repair.
In this new webinar, HSE experts will direct you to relevant legislation, highlight where asbestos is likely to be found and explain why it is dangerous. We’ll take you through the process of carrying out an effective asbestos risk assessment and how to complete an asbestos management plan.
We’ll also provide you with basic guidance to help you to protect yourself and others from the risks that arise from asbestos exposure and signpost you to HSE guidance and resources that are available to help you comply with your legal obligations.
All attendees will receive a CPD certificate. –  REGISTER NOW
