Asbestos Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
If you are a contractor who does any type of demolition or renovation construction on residential buildings or commercial property in the UK, you will want to download the Asbestos Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App ASAP.
How does it work?
The Asbestos Toolbox Talk (UK) app is an ideal occupational safety education tool to identify asbestos hazards and the risk and dangers of asbestos exposure, as well as to learn about regulations in the asbestos industry.
Asbestos was used in the past in building materials including, but not limited to: roofing shingles, flooring material, insulation, ceiling materials, cement compounds, textile products, and automotive parts. However, the safety and health dangers to workers on demolition projects and the environmental health concerns to the general public should be addressed before beginning asbestos jobs.
When materials containing asbestos are disturbed or damaged, exposure to dangerous asbestos fibers can cause serious illness including mesothelioma or other forms of cancer who have inhaled asbestos dust or particles.
Proper training is imperative to prevent occupational exposure during asbestos abatement or asbestos removal projects, especially for the construction of buildings prior to 2000. Use the Toolbox app to discuss: protective equipment such as respirators; the certification requirements to be an asbestos abatement contractor; and the need to stay aware when in an asbestos work area.
When it is time to conduct your next Toolbox Talk, or informal workplace safety meeting that focuses on asbestos education, turn to the Asbestos Toolbox Talk app to prevent asbestos exposure, eliminate asbestos hazards, and encourage safe work practices.
Easily accessible from any iPhone, iPad, Android devices, or even a PC, the Asbestos Toolbox Talk app should be downloaded to all your construction team members today!
There are a number of other Toolbox Talk apps for the UK that can be found in the GoCanvas store.
