TRAINING SPECIFICATION

Knowledge and understanding

Control measure element Learning outcome

Safe system of work: Fibre-reinforced composite materials and machine-made mineral fibres

Understand:

  • How to identify the presence of fibre-reinforced composite materials and machine-made mineral fibres
  • Safe systems of work that can be employed to mitigate the effects of damaged fibre-reinforced composite materials and machine-made mineral fibres
  • How the hazard of airborne pollution from fibres can be managed

 

Practical application

Control measure element Learning outcome

Safe system of work: Fibre-reinforced composite materials and machine-made mineral fibres

Demonstrate the ability to:

  • Establish decontamination procedures following exposure to airborne particulates
  • Establish safe systems of work when in the vicinity of composite materials are identified
  • Use foam or fine water sprays to reduce the risk of airborne pollution from fibres
