E B Safety Solutions in partnership with Equipe Group has developed a new asbestos training course for the UK ground investigation industry - Managing and working with asbestos risk in ground investigation (MARGI).

Richard Betts, director of E B Safety Solutions spoke to GDI about the training programme: "This is not an awareness course - there are plenty of them out there - instead we identified the need for practical and pragmatic training and guidance regarding safely managing, planning and working on ground investigations where asbestos has been or is likely to be encountered."

The new training course, developed by the two businesses will navigate delegates through asbestos legislation while outlining a systematic approach for ground investigation work, where asbestos is encountered so that it can be completed in a safe, practical and compliant manner.

The MARGI course will examine the current legislative framework and provide an industry perspective on situations and conditions where sampling and testing involving asbestos can be safely carried out or when works should stop and be re-assessed.
