Asbestos Awareness e-Learning Module

Any building built prior to the year 2000 has a likelihood of having some form of asbestos in it. This could be insulating board, pipe lagging or insulation. The number of asbestos related deaths has risen over the years and asbestos awareness has become a very important matter for both employers and employees. This awareness course has been designed to provide you with information about the history, examples asbestos containing materials and the health hazards related to asbestos. This course does not permit you to handle asbestos but will satisfy the requirements to have regular asbestos awareness training.

The course has a multiple-choice test at the end and successful delegates will get a downloadable certificate to show they have completed and understood the contents of this course.

I don't have Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, what should I do?

If you don't have Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Word installed on your PC or Mac, don't worry - you can still use our products. You can get a free alternative from Open Office.

Open Office Org is open-source developed alternative to Microsoft Office, developed by a large software company called Oracle. Open Source means the company who build the software, allow 100% use of it, 100% free.

Since Open Office is specifically developed to be exactly the same as Microsoft Office, with all the same programs in the suite (Eg: Word, Excel, Access and Power Point) - it will freely open any Microsoft Office file-format. Meaning, just because a document was written in Microsoft Word, doesn't mean it can't be opened in another program. Open Office will do that, and vise versa.

To download and install Open Office;

  1. Go to www.openoffice.org.
  2. On the left hand side, click 'I want to download Open Office'. In the green box, click the main link which starts with 'Start downloading OpenOffice.org...'
    • Windows Only:When the program has downloaded, click Install and wait for the program to install.
    • MAC OSX Only:When the program has downloaded, a notification box will pop up with an arrow from the Open Office Icon to the Applications Folder in Finder, drag the icon to the Applications folder to install the program.
  3. You are now ready to use Open Office, and the documents you have purchased from us.
