Asbestos Awareness Level Training Course | HAZWOPER OSHA

29 CFR 1926.1101

Only: $49.99/ person

Wallet ID included Mobile Device Ready

Our Asbestos Awareness Training course is designed to provide general information and guidelines to workers involved in activities where asbestos-containing materials (ACM) may be accidentally disturbed during normal work operations.

During this training you will learn about the mineral “asbestos” and its characteristics, its uses in the ancient times and the industrial era, modes of exposure, and methods of prevention from the hazardous asbestos fibers.

It is important to remember that attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.
