Occupational Health and Safety for the Asbestos Exposed Worker – Calgary Workshop
The Occupational Health and Safety for the Asbestos Exposed Worker (Asbestos Certification) course is government-approved training required for all workers conducting high risk asbestos removal in Alberta as outlined by Alberta Ministry of Labour, Occupational Health and Safety.
This two-day course is divided into eight components, in alignment with the Alberta Asbestos Abatement Manual:
- Asbestos and asbestos-containing materials
- Health effects associated with exposure
- Introduction to asbestos abatement methods
- Asbestos abatement procedures
- Personal protective equipment
- Air monitoring and analysis

In addition to lectures and written exercises, there are hands-on activities designed to familiarize students with the practical aspects of asbestos removal. These include respirator inspections and glove-bag removal exercises.
This course meets the worker training requirements outlined in Chapter 3 of the Alberta Asbestos Abatement Manual and is recommended for workers who may enter a “restricted” area (“an area of the work site where there is a reasonable chance that the airborne concentration of asbestos exceeds the OEL”).
The cost is $375.00 per person, plus GST. Lunch is not included.
