Occupational Health and Safety for the Asbestos Exposed Worker – Edmonton Workshop

This government-approved training is required for all workers conducting high-risk asbestos removal in Alberta as outlined by Alberta Ministry of Labour and Immigration, Occupational Health and Safety. It is a two-day course divided into eight components and aligned with the Alberta Asbestos Abatement Manual:

  • Asbestos and asbestos-containing materials
  • Health effects associated with exposure
  • Legislation
  • Introduction to asbestos abatement methods
  • Asbestos abatement procedures
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Air monitoring and analysis
  • Other health and safety hazards

In addition to lectures and written exercises, there are hands-on activities designed to familiarize the 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 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.
