3-hr Virtual Seminar - OSHA Asbestos and Mold Awareness: All-in-One Session
This 3-hr virtual seminar - OSHA Asbestos and Mold Awareness - will cover OSHA's regulations on Asbestos and specific guidelines and general regulations on Mold.
Why Should You Attend:
Asbestos is one of the most highly regulated substances, and for good reasons as it’s a potent carcinogen with no known safe exposure. Of all of the toxic and hazardous substances it could have regulated, OSHA chose to regulate Asbestos first.
Mold, on the other hand, is an even more ubiquitous contaminant in buildings, yet OSHA has not even attempted any regulations specific to it. Instead, they have a set of guidelines as well as several general regulations that all apply.
In this 3-hour session we will cover the required elements of the 2-hour awareness training OSHA requires for Asbestos, as well as the OSHA Mold guidelines and many of their applicable regulations.
At the end of the training, learners should be able to:
- Describe what Asbestos is and its various forms.
- Explain the adverse health effects of asbestos.
- List the different steps to avoid exposures to Asbestos.
- Delineate the general OSHA requirements for Asbestos.
