This course has been designed primarily to comply with training requirements as required by OSHA in 29 CFR 1910.1001. The employer shall train each employee who is exposed to airborne concentrations of asbestos at or above the PEL and/or excursion limit. Training shall be provided prior to or at the time of initial assignment and at least annually thereafter.
