Our awareness course

PCBU’s now have a legal responsibility (HSAW Act s36(3)(f) and HSAW Regs (asbestos) s17 workers who work with asbestos receive appropriate training.  This includes those that work on <10m2 non friable ACM.

To assist you to achieve this legal requirement, APS conduct Asbestos Awareness Training courses. The course covers the background on asbestos, health effects, locations and steps to take should you have an emergency or be exposed to asbestos. This course is beneficial to anyone who may encounter asbestos, building and construction workers, plumbers, electricians, painters and plasters.

Awareness course

The course provides face to face interaction with our qualified instructor with over 15years experience in the industry.  Courses are usually 3-4 hrs. and can be held at your premises or our Christchurch facility.

If you are looking to educate/train your employees on the basics of asbestos awareness, then contact our experienced(25yrs) in house trainer who will supply your staff with an informative session in Asbestos and their obligations to ensure they and their work colleagues are safe when working around Asbestos materials. APS can offer individual and group sessions and can come to your workplace or to our classroom.

The syllabus is based on Work Safe NZ guidelines.

Client Testimonials

After a horrible experience purchasing my new home and discovering that there was an issue with the ceiling, the team from Asbestos Property Solutions not only came to the party they bought the best gift – amazing service, great communication and friendly professional staff. They ensured the experience of having Asbestos removed was not only safe, professional, and easy but made me feel like my wee home was important to them. They are a trustworthy bunch that loves to smile, and they enjoy what they do. Melody in the office is a gem and was very diligent in insuring I had all the information I need. This company is a keeper in my contacts. Would give them a 12 of 10 for their work, service, professionalism, and result.
