Asbestos Hazard Awareness - Spanish Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral with excellent heat- and fire-resistant properties. Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in building materials, pipe coatings, flooring, paint and texturing, and many other applications. Unfortunately, inhaling asbestos fibers can cause asbestosis, a chronic – and often fatal – lung disease. Fortunately, U.S. manufacturing began phasing out asbestos in the 1970s. However, there are still many buildings, homes and commercial facilities that contain Asbestos-Containing Building Materials (ACBMs). This course will give workers an overview of asbestos safety, including how asbestos exposure can happen, the negative health effects of asbestos exposure, and common safety practices they must follow to avoid exposure. This course is appropriate for all workers in general, construction, oil and gas, and other industrial settings. While this course is designed to meet OSHA training requirements, there may be additional site-specific training requirements for workers. Please refer to the regulation listed on this page for more information. This course is presented in Spanish.
