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:

  1. Asbestos and asbestos-containing materials
  2. Health effects associated with exposure
  3. Legislation
  4. Introduction to asbestos abatement methods
  5. Asbestos abatement procedures
  6. Personal protective equipment
  7. Air monitoring and analysis
  8. Other health and safety hazards

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.

Payment is required prior to course commencement and can be made via VISA or Master Card.
