Since many materials commonly used in buildings for many years (including ceiling tiles, vinyl flooring, and wall and pipe insulation) contain asbestos, this means that the regulation applies to virtually every custodial, janitorial and maintenance worker in the country.
TPC Training Systems' online and safety video training on Asbestos Awareness have been created specifically to educate employees about the dangers of working with materials that may contain asbestos.
Topics covered in this industrial safety course include:– Hazards of asbestos.
– OSHA's Asbestos Standard.
– Composition and nature of asbestos.
– Types of materials that may contain asbestos, and where they are encountered.
– How to protect yourself when disturbing a material that may contain asbestos.
– Air monitoring and decontamination.
