Asbestos training for Home Fix Scotland staff

Asbestos may have been banned in the construction of new buildings but exposure to asbestos material is still a very real risk. Last year, it remained the single biggest cause of work-related deaths within the UK.

Today, a number of Home Fix Scotland employees undertook an asbestos awareness course at Springkell Street to help manage that risk. The course, which lasted the full day, was designed to help staff identify the type of asbestos contaminated material that they would encounter in their day-to-day work.

John Williams, Senior Contracts Manager said: “We can manage exposure to asbestos by working together with our Health & Safety department to increase awareness amongst staff.

Investing in our people is a huge part of that and this is just the latest step we have taken to ensure they can operate in a safe and secure environment.”
