It is a requirement for workers exposed to asbestos on a regular basis that they be trained in the identification and handling of items that do or potentially contain asbestos. With the proper training workers can avoid these hazards and minimize the risks involved in dealing with asbestos. Beyond identifying potential hazards workers should be trained on creating a plan and following the proper procedures to remove hazards without putting anyone’s health at risk.
We offer a number of courses that workers to handle asbestos on different levels of managements, from the worker level all the way up to the supervisor role. It is critical that workers on all levels of asbestos management are properly trained in their respective roles to keep everyone safe from exposure to this hazard. Without the right training many things could go wrong and the health and lives of workers could ultimately be at stake.
It is a requirement for employers to keep their employees trained and certifications up to date to avoid on-the-job injury, illness or even death. It’s not a risk worth taking.
