Course Description

Asbestos is everywhere. It is in buildings and occurs naturally. And it has not been banned. Some products can be sold with asbestos content and not be labeled as such.

Thus, common sense would say that building managers should be aware of its hazards and knowledgeable about its care. In addition to these common sense requirements, there are also specific regulatory requirements:

  • The OSHA Asbestos Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.1101(k)(2)) requires building owners to identify certain materials as asbestos and to notify employees, tenants, and prospective contractors about the presence of these materials in their facilities.
  • The U.S. EPA and several states have adopted requirements for managing asbestos in public and private K-12 schools under the so-called "AHERA" requirements. Among other things, AHERA requires that each local education agencies designate a person to ensure AHERA compliance regardless of whether that school system has any asbestos in any school building.

This course not only meets all AHERA training requirements for LEA Designated Persons (40 CFR 763.84(g))but it also helps all building managers keep building occupants safe while achieving cost-effective compliance with OSHA and EPA asbestos rules.
