Updated online Asbestos Essentials for Non-Licensed work with asbestos

Asbestos Essentials online task sheets provide information for those in the building maintenance and allied trades on safe work with asbestos.  The suite of free-to-download HSE Asbestos Essentials task sheets has been reviewed and updated.  There is more emphasis on the importance of appropriate information, instruction and training. The sheets now indicate whether specific tasks are likely to be Non-Licensed or Notifiable Non-Licensed work (or when work requires the services of a licensed contractor).  A revised edition of the hard copy priced publication, HSG210, will be available at a later date.
