Asbestos Awareness – 2 Hour

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that has been used in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire retardant. Asbestos fibers may be released into the air by the disturbance of asbestos-containing material during product use, demolition work, building or home maintenance, repair, and remodeling.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Asbestos standard includes 1910, 1926, and EPA requirements.
