Overview

We've all probably heard a lot about asbestos, but what exactly is it? To start, asbestos is a mineral that, admittedly, has some beneficial qualities; it is lightweight, heat resistant, and sound absorbing, among others. However, asbestos has many hidden dangers you need to know about. This training video teaches you about those dangers, as well as how to reduce your chances of asbestos exposure.

Before the harmful effects of asbestos were known, it was used throughout the construction process; for example, it was mixed into plaster for support and sprayed onto to girders for fireproofing. These asbestos fibers are invisible to the human eye but have the strength of steel, which is where the problems begin. Humans cannot smell or taste these fibers, so they cannot tell when they have inhaled or ingested them. Because of this, OSHA has issued training protocols geared specifically toward those who may come into contact with asbestos. Protect yourself against the dangers of asbestos by understanding the information presented in this video.

In order to best protect yourself from asbestos, you first need to know where you might come into contact with it at your workplace. If your company expects you to have to deal with asbestos on site, they will have put together a detailed asbestos management plan, which will inform you of what materials you may encounter, as well as where you may encounter them.

It is critical you are well prepared if you have to work around asbestos; if you either have to remove asbestos or work next to it you need to understand how to protect yourself from its harmful side effects. With this training you will do just that; understand the dangers inherent in working with asbestos, as well as how to best avoid any potential harm to yourself.
