Why Should You Take This Asbestos Awareness Course?
This Asbestos Awareness course is designed especially for custodial, maintenance, and trades persons who will conduct operations which may contact or disturb asbestos in buildings. It is intended to review the source and history of asbestos, and the health effects associated with asbestos exposure. We will discuss the regulations, both federal and state, which limit the activities you may perform relating to asbestos. Finally, we will discuss recognizing damaged and deteriorated asbestos-containing materials. This course also requires that employees be made aware of the locations and quantities of asbestos materials in the building, and the name of the Asbestos Program Manager for the facility where they work.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires this training course for employees who fall under Class IV asbestos work. Class IV asbestos work entails activities performed by maintenance and custodial employees which contact, but do not disturb asbestos containing material (ACM) or presumed asbestos-containing material (PACM). Asbestos containing materials (ACM) is any material that contains more than one percent (>1%) asbestos. Presumed asbestos containing materials (PACM) includes thermal system insulation (TSI) or surfacing material found in buildings constructed prior to 1981.
Intended Audience: Construction, building maintenance and janitorial personnel who work in commercial buildings and schools and who may come into contact with asbestos-containing material.
