Asbestos Awareness for Architects and Designers Online

Approved by RoSPA and IATP Covers UK & Irish Legislation

This asbestos awareness for architects and designers online course covers the same subjects as our Asbestos Awareness course with an additional module aimed specifically at architects and designers working with buildings that may contain asbestos. It provides information about the legislation governing asbestos in work and outlines the responsibilities of architects and designers.


While this Asbestos Awareness Training Online course focuses on UK Stats and Legislation, most importantly the requirements are all based on European Directives and European Norms and are applicable throughout Europe. Therefore the main reference documents used in the UK and Ireland are:
HSE (UK) technical documents such as HSG 248
The analysts’ guide for sampling, analysis and clearance procedures, HSG 264 Asbestos:
The Survey
Guide and HSG 247 The Licensed Contractors Guide.
