Dear colleagues dear friends,
Despite the EU wide ban on the production of asbestos it can still be found everywhere in Europe particularly in buildings, where it poses a threat to human health and the environment. To address the special risk to construction workers who may encounter asbestos accidently during the course of e.g. renovation, maintenance or demolition a Leonardo Da Vinci Project was called into life under the title making the EU Clean of Asbestos. The goal was to create an online asbestos awareness training course for the responsible workers in companies that might encounter asbestos accidentally during the course of their work.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the project’s final conference on 10th September in Brussels, where our consortium will present the results of the project, including our online training course for asbestos awareness in the construction sector. The day will conclude with an expert panel discussion and networking opportunity.
For more information about the event and a full list of speakers please find attached a draft agenda for the day.
