Who Should Take This Class?

Do you work in or around areas that may contain asbestos? If so, you may need asbestos awareness training to work safely and maintain compliance with U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. At Hazmat School, we offer an online asbestos awareness program designed to meet the needs of maintenance and custodial personnel and other workers who may come into contact with asbestos-containing materials.

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:

Upon completion of this Asbestos Awareness Training Course, you should know:

  • What asbestos is, where it comes from and why it has been used so much.
  • The potential health effects of asbestos.
  • Where asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and potential asbestos-containing materials (PACM) are commonly found.
  • Proper precautions and work practices when working around asbestos.
  • How to recognize asbestos hazards due to damage or deterioration.
  • Appropriate response to an asbestos fiber release.
  • What OSHA regulations apply to workers who work with or around asbestos and what aspects of those regulations affect you or your company.

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.
