The list of courses also includes Asbestos Awareness.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, commonly used in a variety of building materials and industrial products until the 1980s. When asbestos fibres are disturbed, they can become airborne and inhaled which may lead to serious health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.
Key requirements regarding Asbestos Management in the workplace:
Identify and Assess the Risk of Asbestos Exposure. This involves Inspecting the workplace for asbestos-containing materials (ACMs); reviewing building records and plans to identify known ACMs and testing suspicious materials to determine if they contain asbestos.
Control the Risk of Asbestos Exposure. The best way to control the risk of asbestos exposure is to avoid disturbing ACMs whenever possible. However, if ACMs must be disturbed, there are several control measures that can be implemented to reduce the risk of worker exposure, including: Isolating the work area to prevent the spread of asbestos fibres to other parts of the building; using wet methods to suppress dust during work activities; using engineering controls such as local exhaust ventilation (LEV) to remove asbestos fibres from the air and using personal protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators and protective clothing to protect workers from exposure to asbestos fibres.
Provide Training and Information for Workers. Workers who may be exposed to asbestos must be trained on the hazards of asbestos and the control measures that are in place to protect them. Training should include information on the health risks of asbestos exposure; how to identify ACMs; how to work safely with ACMs and the use of PPE.
Keep Records. Employers are required to keep records of all asbestos work that is carried out in the workplace.
Use Licensed Contractors. In some cases, employers may be required to hire a licensed contractor to carry out work on ACMs. This is required for all licensed asbestos work, and for some types of non-licensed asbestos work.
Organisations can comply with the Asbestos regulations by developing and implementing a written asbestos management plan, ensuring it is regularly reviewed and updated and taking steps to repair or remove damaged ACMs promptly, ensuring workers are protected from exposure to asbestos.

The App is free, developed by Erin Beck (Project Coordinator) and Oliver De Maria (Project Coordinator) whilst working with the iProtectU IT Developers. Both Erin and Oliver wanted to increase health, safety and wellbeing awareness in the workplace and made it their mission to develop a free, easy-to-use product, available to all.
