Overview

Identification of Asbestos in bulk samples

Introduction

The identification of asbestos in bulk samples course will provide delegate’s practical as well as theoretical knowledge about techniques to identify asbestos in bulk samples by making use of polarises light microscopy (PLM) and stereo microscope. During this course, broad range of topics will be covered like associated health effects of asbestos, nature of asbestos, detail review of various products that contain asbestos and procedure to perform sampling for identifying asbestos. Enrol into this course and excel in your career as an analyst, laboratory manager etc.

What’s Included?

  • A highly experience instructor will teach you about different types of asbestos and its use in the industry.
  • The detailed, user-friendly manual that will help in clearing the concepts.
  • The course is led by highly experienced trainers with many years of practical experience.
  • The instructor will make use of numerous examples and practical exercises in a training environment.
  • Pre and Post Email support so that if any problem occurs in future, it can be resolved quickly.
  • Refreshments will be provided to the delegates
  • An attendance certificate will be given to the delegates to ensure their presence.

Prerequisites

Delegates must be familiar with The Analysis Guide, sampling and identification by polarised light (PLM). If candidates have prior experience of analysing bulk samples, using and setting up a microscope as well as participating in quality control schemes it can be beneficial.

Who should attend?

The analysts, laboratory managers or delegates who are involved in the analysis of bulk samples for asbestos fibres can enrol in this course for enhancing their knowledge.

What will you learn?

  • Learn to identify asbestos in bulk samples by making use of learnt techniques.
  • Carry out some practical’s by Implementing learnt skills properly.
  • Know about the different types and forms of asbestos fibres and their use in industries.
  • Understand the theory of polarised light and techniques of setting up as well as using a polarised light.
  • Identify the asbestos in samples using a polarised light microscope and approved methods for analysing asbestos fibre samples.
  • Get a proper understanding of exposure controls and quality controls which are required during this activity.

Benefits of this course:

  • Know completely about the nature of asbestos and its related health effects.
  • Implement polarised light microscopy (PLM) effectively for identifying asbestos in bulk samples.
  • Gain practical knowledge and skills to carry out analysis of bulk samples for finding the presence of asbestos in it according to HSG2248.
  • After completing this course, you can become an analyst, laboratory managers for doing identification and sampling or excel in this field if you are already into it.
