Course Description


An estimated 1.3 million employees face significant asbestos exposure on the job. Heaviest exposures occur in the construction industry, particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition. Employees are also likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials), during automotive brake and clutch repair work, or while working in older buildings. 

This course teaches employees the basics of how to protect themselves from an asbestos hazard. Topics include the OSHA standard, PPE requirements, safe work practices, and methods of compliance.
