About Asbestos Awareness Safety Training for OSHA and NIOSH Compliance

Asbestos safety and awareness is still a major concern in our industry, especially as older buildings are coming under the wrecking ball, or are being remodeled.

Three of the major health effects associated with asbestos exposure are:

  • lung cancer
  • mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is found in the thin lining of the lung, chest and the abdomen and heart
  • asbestosis, a serious progressive, long-term, non-cancer disease of the lungs

Asbestos is an extremely strong and fire resistant fiber. For that reason it was used as a flame retardant in building materials including pipe wrap and insulation. It was also used extensively in manufactured goods, including door gaskets and automobile clutches and brakes. It is also a major health hazard when airborne

Making sure your employees are properly trained on the identification, hazards, and  health concerns surrounding asbestos is not just critical, but is the law. As an employer make sure you have a OSHA safety plan, and a safety training program in place. (1910.1001(j)(7)(i))
