All Dorton Group employees receive detailed and specific asbestos awareness training on commencement of employment with annual refresher training carried out to meet the requirements of the statutory regulations as well as Industry Training Group requirements .

This is a key component of the group's safety at work and its adherence to the Occupational Health and Safety system OHSAS18001:2007. Training to meet all eventualities is paramount to ensuring that each member of staff has an in depth understanding of his or her role and how to recognise potential hazards as well as managing the necessary control measures. Estimators and contract managers etc also find this approach useful particularly for competitive pricing when the practical aspects of the task need to reflect the statutory conditions for dealing with asbestos.
