asbestos awareness training bc
Asbestos Awareness Training in Vancouver BC.
Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring minerals used in many products because it adds strength, heat resistance, and chemical resistance. Asbestos is a hazardous material. If employers and workers do not take proper precautions for work around asbestos, workers may develop serious chronic health problems or even die of an asbestos-related disease.
Anyone who repairs, renovates, or demolishes older buildings in BC is at risk of inhaling asbestos fibres. Found in dozens of items in older buildings, asbestos breaks down into small fibres as it ages or when it is disturbed. Touching or moving it releases the fibres into the air, where they can linger for hours. The most effective way to manage the risk of exposure to asbestos is to eliminate the source of exposure. If that's not possible, there are other risk controls to use.
Our 4-hour asbestos awareness training course in BC offers an explanation of the hazards and health effects of asbestos exposures and identification of common types of products that contain asbestos in BC. This course is designed for workers, managers and supervisors in work places where asbestos containing materials may be encountered or disturbed during the course of daily work activities.
