Asbestos is a naturally occurring material found in many building products that is considered very hazardous to health and is heavily regulated by both OSHA and the EPA. Proper training when working with materials that may contain asbestos is essential to help identify it, and protect yourself around this dangerous substance. eTraining’s Asbestos Safety for the Competent Person Course will help to do just that. We’ve created one of the most comprehensive asbestos courses available today. Built and developed from the OSHA standard for Asbestos safety – 29 CFR 1926.1101, the regulation applies to constructing, renovating, maintaining, demolishing, or salvaging asbestos containing structures.
It also covers removing asbestos materials, installing asbestos containing materials, cleaning up asbestos spills, and the transporting, storing or housekeeping that is involved with asbestos-containing materials on a construction site. This training also covers the duties and responsibilities of a job site competent person, to aid the student in achieving this designation, per OSHAs competent person requirement.
This fully narrated course is broken up into 7 units. There will be knowledge check quizzes throughout these units to help keep the learner on pace. These quizzes will prepare you for the final, which you will take at the end of the course.
After passing the final with a score of 70% or better, you will be able to print a personalized certificate with your name, the course you passed, the date taken, certificate number, as well as our company information should anyone need to verify the authenticity of the certificate.
This course is packed with photos, interactivity, videos, and a wealth of valuable information and is approximately 5 hours in length.
