Asbestos Awareness Training for Civil Operators

There are many asbestos awareness courses out there, but they are all geared towards the building and construction industry or homeowners. That is why we developed an asbestos awareness course for earthworks and earthmoving machine operators. Australia was the biggest per capita users of asbestos in the world. This means Australia has a huge deadly asbestos legacy. A legacy that will remain for many years to come and ensuring the job security of asbestos experts well into the future and that asbestos will remain a part of every major infrastructure upgrade in Australia for generations to come.

Asbestos was used underground for the same reasons as above ground. Asbestos is strong, cheap, and chemically inert. It became the go to material and heavily favoured by civil companies and utility and service providers for these very reasons. To name a few, asbestos pipes were extensively used for sewers, water and drainage. If you are involved in council tenders you are likely to be required to undergo asbestos awareness training.

It doesn't matter whether you are operating a backhoe, bobcat, excavator, loader, even water truck drivers, you are in the front line when it comes to coming across these asbestos assets, and asbestos awareness training is becoming more and more requested, especially by tier one businesses, local councils and state governments. Asbestos awareness training for the machine and plant operators can be delivered in a group setting on site or at your operations centre.

Coastal Asbestos is offering a specific asbestos awareness training program for the civil industry. Asbestos can be found in just about anything that was used in the past. Things like Telstra pits, water mains, electrical conduits and many more applications. Having a civil specific course designed with machine operators provides the highest level of safety on site.
