This course provides students with basic information about asbestos and its hazards and to identify typical asbestos containing materials required by OSHA Asbestos Standards and EPA AHERA rules for school employees who perform housekeeping duties. The course addresses topics for an annual refresher for employees who perform Class III Maintenance and Small-Scale, Short-Duration activities (as defined by AHERA) but assumes that those employees have more comprehensive information from the original class.
This training does not certify the students to work with asbestos but teaches the students how to avoid costly mistakes when working around asbestos containing materials.
There is no exam for the course. This course is offered in both English and Spanish.
Introduction of asbestos, asbestos and health, regulations, industry designations, and associated training, air monitoring, asbestos inspections, communication, and work practice principles are covered in this course. Quizzes are included to test students’ comprehension.
