OSHA requires a minimum of 2 hours training annually.

Course Overview
Battas Asbestos Awareness course, together with additional, "site-specific" information, is designed to meet the annual OSHA and AHERA regulatory requirements in one easy to understand course.  Asbestos awareness training is required upon initial assignment and annually for employees who perform housekeeping operations in an area which contains ACM or presumed ACM (PACM). Note: Workers who perform activities that will result in the disturbance of ACM must receive additional training.


Intended Audience

This online safety course is designed to provide you with asbestos training to satisfy certification requirements. It is intended for all personnel responsible for construction-related projects, including, but not limited to:

Asbestos Awareness Benefits
Battas Asbestos Awareness training provides detailed information about OSHA and EPA specific requirements for working around ACM or PACM. Understanding Asbestos and knowing how to avoid exposure is critical for employees whose work activities may bring them into contact with Asbestos-containing materials. When you have successfully completed this course, you will:

  1. Understand general requirements for working in areas where ACM or PACM may be encountered
  2. Be familiar with the rules and regulations surrounding asbestos exposure and abatement
  3. Know the various ways to avoid exposure to asbestos-containing materials
  4. Understand the health effects of working with asbestos

 

Note: If you are exposed to asbestos at your workplace above the Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) for asbestos, additional training in the use of any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provided by your employer for your safety is warranted. This training should be site-specific and utilize the PPE you will use as part of your job. This training must be provided prior to, or at the time of, initial assignment and at least yearly thereafter. Workers that perform asbestos abatement work require training per their local state EPA standards. Again, this training is for "awareness" only. Visit the EPA website to contact the appropriate party to know more about abatement training and requirements in your state. Finally, When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job. Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training supplied by his or her employer. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.
