This awareness and standards course covers requirements for regulating asbestos exposure in the construction industry. The focus of this course is to familiarize you the standard for safely working with materials that may contain asbestos.
Breathing asbestos fibers can cause asbestosis, a buildup of scar tissue in the lungs that can cause a loss of lung function, disability and death. Asbestos also causes lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other diseases as well.
The use of Asbestos is highly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and OSHA. This online course focuses on the Asbestos Standard for the Construction Industry as described in OSHA 29 CFR § 1926.1101 and is intended to provide a general awareness of asbestos, the risks, and the regulations.
