Asbestos in the Workplace

Asbestos in the Workplace

Learn to recognize, assess and manage asbestos-related risks in the workplace.

Duration: 1 Hour
Price per person: $49.00

Overview

The versatility of asbestos has led to its widespread use in many locations, including workplaces. While the presence of asbestos in newly-installed products has diminished greatly in Canada in recent decades, many older applications remain in homes, buildings and products. Asbestos materials are a potentially serious workplace hazard, and people who inhale asbestos fibres are at risk of developing critical, often fatal, illnesses.

This course equips employers and workers who are not directly involved in asbestos-related industries with the knowledge to recognize, assess and manage asbestos-related risks in the workplace.

This introductory course on its own may not meet asbestos training requirements in all jurisdictions. It should be supplemented by further instruction and training that is specific to the jurisdiction, job, work-site and equipment. Please check your local jurisdiction for exact requirements.
