This comprehensive and practical course is designed to provide an introduction to asbestos abatement work. It is a WorkSafeBC requirement that any worker who is at risk of exposure to asbestos must be trained in the hazards of asbestos, safe work procedures, the correct use of personal protective equipment and engineering controls.

This course is primarily designed for workers in the hazardous materials abatement and restoration industries. However, many general construction workers and specialist tradespeople, such as plumbers and electricians, routinely disturb asbestos materials during the course of their work and would benefit from learning safe work practices.

WorkSafeBC has issued written compliance orders because workers have disturbed asbestos without suitable training.
