Asbestos Project Supervisor Initial Course
From Asbestos Training
State and federal law (OSHA, EPA, and DOT) requires the use of accredited project supervisors for all asbestos removal projects in schools and public and commercial buildings and involving more than small amounts of asbestos. This course not only meets the training requirements for EPA, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky accreditation, it also prepares participants to plan the work to ensure that the job is done safely and efficiently. OSHA now requires this level training for competent persons assigned to conduct Class I or Class II asbestos activities.
In addition to covering the topics of the Institute's asbestos abatement worker training, this course includes training in legal liabilities and how to reduce them, how to perform pre-bid and pre-work activities, how to read an asbestos contract, and how to be an effective supervisor.
