OSHA Asbestos Awareness Training
July 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
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 a 2-hour online asbestos awareness course designed to meet the needs of maintenance and custodial personnel and other workers who may come into contact with asbestos-containing materials.
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 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.
