Do Shopfitters really need to attend?
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) state SHOPFITTERS as one of the seventeen occupations that should attend this type of training, find the full list of occupations via this link. Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015), tradespeople are legally required to ensure construction work and repairs are undertaken safely and without damaging worker’s and other people’s health, yet another reason to undertake this important training.
In recognition of the fabulous work the accrediting body UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) do, the NAS has become a ‘Corporate Associate’, find out more here. This is strictly by invitation only to like-minded associations, charities and not for profit organisations, professional and industry registers. It actively demonstrates NAS’ commitment and support to continued improvements and developments within the asbestos industry, in particular for people working in the shopfitting, fit-out and interiors sectors.
Asbestos kills 20 tradespeople in the UK every week, making it the single biggest cause of work-related deaths. Despite its ban in 1999, it is estimated that even now there are six million tonnes of asbestos in the UK, in as many as 1.5 million UK buildings, and the death rate from asbestos-related diseases continues to rise.
One of the main reasons identified for the rise in asbestos-related diseases is because of a lack of awareness of the dangers, says UKATA.
As part of the partnership, UKATA is urging every NAS member to ensure they undertake the appropriate level of asbestos training relevant to their role.
