Online Asbestos Awareness Training
ONLINE ASBESTOS AWARENESS TRAINING
Our Online Asbestos Awareness training course is in full compliance with the BC Occupational Health and Safety Regulations & Workers Compensation Act.
Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring minerals used in many products because it adds strength, heat resistance, and chemical resistance. Asbestos is a hazardous material. If employers and workers do not take proper precautions for work around asbestos, workers may develop serious chronic health problems or even die of an asbestos-related disease. Our course has been designed for construction managers, building managers, engineers, maintenance workers, caretakers and other tradesmen that may come in contact with asbestos during their daily activities.
Our online asbestos awareness training course offers an explanation of the hazards and health effects of asbestos exposures and identification of common types of products that contain asbestos. This course is designed for workers, managers and supervisors in work places where asbestos containing materials may be encountered or disturbed during the course of daily work activities.
