Rob – Christian Brothers Insurance only has one training.
General Industry Asbestos
Awareness, 23:04 Min.
Target Audience: Employees
This training program provides participants with basic information about asbestos and its hazards and identifies typical asbestos-containing materials within work areas. The training does not qualify employees to work with asbestos-containing materials.
I am not sure there is a generic presentation that could be offered to all membership throughout the US since local jurisdictions have their own requirements. If there is one, maybe it could be offered thru CCFM for cost savings.
In a past life when I worked for Motel 6 where I held Asbestos Inspector and Management Planner Certifications. The Awareness Class can be given by a “Qualified Expert”. I actually did the class for several years and became the Company Expert so to say. The 2 hour course doesn’t qualify the Maintenance People to clean up the debris, it only meets the EPA Guidelines for training your employees. We tell them here if they see a disturbance based on the information in their O & M Program – first isolate, second call us at Facilities, then we dispatch a clean up contractor. Too much liability if they handle it. Here I had our Environmental Engineering Firm teach the first class and I am relying on my past Certifications to be the “Expert” and I do the annual now. Well I am just probably more informed than the average bear.
