Asbestos Management for Responsible Persons in Schools

Please note this is a repeat of the webinar which took place in February 2023, if you attended the previous training session, you do not need to attend again unless you wish to.

Who should attend?

This is compulsory online training session for schools, targeted at individuals who have responsibility for asbestos management within their school. It is expected that at least one representative from each diocesan school will attend the webinar. The responsible person for managing asbestos in the diocese’s schools should be specified in the school’s asbestos management plan and is normally the school headteacher. Responsible persons in schools built before 2000 are strongly urged to attend either this course or the same course which will be repeated on 6 June 2023. Asbestos is a serious issue for schools, pupils, staff, the diocese, and the Health & Safety Executive. This course is also open to Executive Headteachers, Headteachers, Heads of School, School Business Managers, Governors responsible for health and safety.
