This course was designed by The Asbestos Institute for compliance with the federal OSHA standard for asbestos in construction.
This OSHA Class II removal course is unique in that 4 different ACM materials are covered in the same 8 hour class. The materials covered are Asbestos (Transite) Siding or Shingles, ACM Acoustical Ceiling Tile, Transite Panels and ACM Drywall Assemblies.
This online course is in compliance with all the OSHA training requirements at 29 CFR 1926.1101(k)(9)(iv) except the “hands-on” portion of the training. This hands-on portion of the training is the responsibility of the employer (as is all OSHA required training), and should be conducted by the Competent Person for the site, in compliance with this OSHA standard, company procedures and following the control procedures in the Negative Exposure Assessment that the Competent person has developed.
Even though this Class II Worker Training is OSHA training, EPA NESHAP issues may apply, for instance, when the ACM waste generated may be (or become) Regulated Asbestos Containing Material (RACM). This would not affect the worker training, but would require an EPA certified Supervisor to be onsite and the waste steam would be regulated. Also, if the removal work is to be done in a Negative Pressure Enclosure, OSHA would require that the workers be trained at the EPA certified worker level, a 4-day training, which can be done at our classroom facility in Phoenix, AZ, or at the employer’s site.
Aside from the above EPA issues, this course is sufficient for meeting federal OSHA compliance required for training for removal of these materials.
