CAR 2012 states that “any employee who may be exposed, or is liable to be exposed to asbestos (or supervises those who are) while conducting their normal duties, must be trained and employers must provide adequate information, instruction and training to those employees”.
Santia understands that delegates’ needs are different and therefore offers a truly flexible learning experience. The Asbestos Awareness online course is hosted on Santia’s cloud based Learning Management System. Optimised for use with the latest browsers, the package has been developed to be lean and succinct. The package will run on a standard business PC, laptop or mobile device.
