Are you a worker who may be in contact with Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) or Presumed Asbestos Containing Materials (PACM) during your course of work? This is not actually the removal of ACM/PACM as part of abatement but normal tasks like maintenance, repair, or custodial tasks where asbestos in work areas may be present and contact is possible. Under OSHA regulations, workers with potential contact of ACM/PACM must receive “Awareness Training” in order to understand the potential health risks of exposure to asbestos materials.
This class will provide you with the required awareness training including
(1) recognizing potential asbestos materials in your workplace in various uses and forms,
(2) the health effects of exposure to asbestos, and
(3) typical hazard control measures used to protect workers where ACM/PACM is present.
The training will include numerous photos of various industrial and public building projects where ACM/PACM was in use and abatement and/or control measures were performed to protect workers and the public. As OSHA stated in the preamble to the standard on asbestos in construction, “training is the most powerful instrument to protect workers against developing asbestos-related disease.”
This class will provide you with the practical knowledge you need to protect your health during work activities where asbestos materials may be present. NOTE this training does NOT qualify you as an asbestos removal worker – additional training is required for this qualification.
Registrations are closed for this event.
NOTE: We do not have the manpower to make changes to your schedule or to track “wait lists” this year.
If a class is full, please go to the class and check in with the monitor at class time. The monitor will add folks on a first-come, first-served basis as space permits. Please, do not be late for your class (your spot will be filled) and please DON’T be a “No Show.” If your class is at AGC, ITD, Tates Rents, or Suez (previously United Water), please go to those locations to see if you can attend.
Also, please make sure you print your classes after you register. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provide during account registration. In order to check your class schedule, log in using your username and password and navigate to My Classes. If you cannot remember your classes, please come to the registration desk for your packet at the BSU Student Union Building the first day of the conference.
