Asbestos Awareness OSHA

OSHA’s asbestos standard for general industry at 29 CFR 1910.1001(j)(7)(iv) requires employers to provide a 2-hour asbestos awareness training class for employees who perform housekeeping operations in areas where an asbestos-containing material (ACM) or presumed asbestos-containing material (PACM) is present. The elements of the class must include the health effects of asbestos; locations, signs of damage and deterioration of ACM and PACM; the proper response to fiber release episodes; and the standard’s requirements related to housekeeping. This training must be held annually and conducted so that all employees understand it.
