New- Asbestos register eLearning video demo module now available for Warwick staff

Good Asbestos management is a vital tool for ensuring that staff and contractors work safely and to assist with ensuring that this occurs the University has developed an online Asbestos Register to provide easy access to its asbestos survey information.

The register has been compiled from detailed surveys of all accessible spaces within the buildings (those constructed prior to the year 2000) where materials suspected of containing asbestos have been sampled and also the general construction of each space has been recorded.The register will need checking prior to carrying out work or instructing others to carry out work on our behalf.

You can self-enrol, access and complete the course on Moodle.
