This is a non-certified awareness class. This is not an asbestos remediation class. OSHA’s general industry regulation 29 CFR 1910.1001, Occupational Exposure to Asbestos, requires that all employees who could come into contact with materials that might contain asbestos be given appropriate training on working safely with asbestos materials.

OSHA’s construction standard 29 CFR 1926.1101 establishes four classes of construction work involving asbestos. Classes I – III work involves installing or disturbing materials that might contain asbestos. These employees should attend an asbestos remediation training course.

Who needs this course?

The largest group of employees fall into the Class IV group, which involves “maintenance and custodial activities to clean up waste and debris containing these type of materials.” Since many materials commonly used in buildings for many years (including ceiling tiles, vinyl flooring, and wall and pipe insulation and even some adhesives) contain asbestos, this means that OSHA’s general industry regulation applies to virtually every custodial, janitorial, and maintenance worker engaged in housekeeping activities in the country.

Asbestos Awareness has been created specifically to educate employees about the dangers of working with materials that may contain asbestos.
