Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral consisting of microscopic fibers that boast exceptional resistance to heat, electricity and corrosion. These fibers are easily inhaled once airborne, where they then accumulate in the human body. Once exposed to asbestos, an individual may develop lung issues that lead to cancers and other dangerous illnesses such as mesothelioma.

Asbestos is commonly found in older insulation, floor tiles, cement, drywall and more. While it’s no longer mined and is unavailable on the market, asbestos is still present within many existing buildings, where it poses health threats to individuals therein. Since the early 1980s, officials have increased precautions and restrictions on asbestos installation, yet many industries still face risks related to its use, including:

  • Automotive repair
  • Renovation and demolition
  • Firefighting
  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Building maintenance

As a result, current regulations require workers within these industries to obtain and maintain comprehensive asbestos certificates.

OSHA Asbestos Training Online

Any individual working closely in environments involving potential asbestos exposure must undergo special asbestos awareness training and recertify that instruction each year. Our online asbestos training is a convenient and cost-effective option for students to obtain their certificate using their computer, phone, tablet or any other device.

Our two-hour asbestos awareness training video makes it easy for workers to learn about various asbestos-related topics. They will gain access to a detailed PowerPoint overlayed with audio for a fully automated and engaging experience. Students move at their own pace through the video to complete it within 30 days of registration.

This course offers instantaneous certification upon completion, allowing students to provide proof of their asbestos certificate in a PDF format for employers or other necessary officials.

Who Should Take This Class?

Do you work in or around areas that may contain asbestos? If so, you may need to enroll in awareness training to receive an asbestos certification, teaching you how to work safely while maintaining compliance with U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. This certification is required for building inspectors conducting checks before remodeling, renovations or construction.

At Hazmat School, we offer an online asbestos awareness program designed to meet the needs of maintenance and custodial personnel and others who may come into contact with asbestos-containing materials. This asbestos certification is ideal for workers, contractors and supervisors, giving them essential information regarding the proper use of equipment, ventilation procedures, engineering controls and more.

Our online OSHA Asbestos Awareness training course is best suited for the following individuals:

  • General industry, construction industry and maritime workers;
  • Maintenance or custodial employees who work in a building or on a ship that contains Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs);
  • A construction manager, engineer or tradesman who works in pre-1981 buildings or buildings with known ACMs;
  • Supervisors or administrative staff who work in schools or other buildings with ACMs;
  • Property or apartment managers who own or manage pre-1981 buildings or buildings with known ACMs;
  • Current or prospective homeowners who are seeking knowledge about asbestos;
  • Anyone who wants a base knowledge about asbestos.

Industries That Require This Course

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was previously used in building materials and other products. Exposure to asbestos can increase a person’s likelihood of developing lung disease and other negative health effects. Although asbestos-containing products are no longer on the market, the material still exists in many buildings. As a result, workers in construction, building maintenance and related industries may require asbestos awareness certifications.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

After receiving your asbestos certificate following your online training, you should understand:

  • What asbestos is, its origin and the reasons for its widespread use.
  • Potential health implications.
  • The locations of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and possible asbestos-containing materials (PACM).
  • How OSHA rulings impact workers and how they affect your company.
  • The methods of recognizing asbestos hazards.
  • Safety precautions and practices.
  • Asbestos fiber release response procedures.

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

Our online asbestos awareness course satisfies the training requirements outlined by OSHA in 29 CFR 1926.1101. This regulation requires employers to provide training to every employee likely to be exposed to asbestos in excess of permissible exposure limits (PEL) and who performs Class I through IV asbestos operations. According to the regulation, training must occur annually and at no cost to the employee. The training program must also ensure employees receive information about a number of specific asbestos-related topics.

At Hazmat School, our online asbestos awareness program meets the training requirements specified for workers performing Class IV work, which involves cleaning up asbestos-containing waste and debris. Please note that our program does not qualify an individual to disturb asbestos-containing materials or participate in Class I through III asbestos operations. These activities require a higher level of training.

This course also meets 29 CFR 1910.1001, 29 CFR 1915.1001 and AHERA 40 CFR 763.92(a)(1) standards.

Topics Covered

This course covers all the topics required by 29 CFR 1926.1101. When you enroll in this course, you can expect to learn about what asbestos is, what potential health effects it has, where it is commonly found and how to recognize asbestos hazards. You will also learn best practices for working around asbestos and how to respond when an asbestos fiber release occurs. With this information, you can better protect yourself and others from this dangerous material.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

Students may have to complete review sections along the way and a final exam at the end of the course. You will need a computer or iPad with Internet access and an email account. No text is required; all course materials are available online. The course will take approximately 2 hours to complete.

GRADING POLICYhazardous waste management certification training

Once the allotted time is up, you will be asked to re-enroll to continue. This course has no prerequisites, so anyone can learn about the hazards of asbestos, regardless of current position or level of experience.
