The course will detail the federal and city laws that regulate asbestos in buildings.
AS 275: Asbestos Awareness for General Industry (2-8 hours) - OSHA 1910.1001 requires employers to develop a training program for all employees who are exposed to airborne concentrations of asbestos at or above the Permissable Exposure Limit (PEL) and/or Excursion Limit (EL). Training must be provided prior to or at the time of initial assignment and at least yearly thereafter. The training program must inform employees about ways in which they can safeguard their health.
In addition, employers must provide an awareness-training course for employees who do housekeeping operations in facilities where asbestos-containing materials or presumed asbestos-containing materials are present. The elements of the course must include the health effects of asbestos; locations, signs of damage and deterioration of asbestos-containing materials and presumed asbestos containing materials; the proper response to fiber release episodes; and where the housekeeping requirements are found in the standard.
NYC Title 15, Chapter- Despite the federal bans of asbestos insulation in new construction, a substantial number of buildings in New York City still contain some form of asbestos. New York City Title 15, Chapter 1 (Asbestos Control Program) provides rules and limitations for building owners and contractors that handle asbestos. As per Title 15, anyone performing renovation, alteration, or demolition of a building in NYC must:
Ascertain if asbestos will be disturbed by the scope of work.
Obtain a permit from the Buildings Departments prior to commencing the work. In order to obtain a permit, one of these two forms must be submitted to the Building Departments: a “Not an Asbestos Project Notification Form” (ACP-5); or an “Asbestos Project Notification Form” (ACP-7). ALC’s trained New York City Investigators perform asbestos surveys for architects, building owners and contractors throughout the five boroughs of New York City, to determine if asbestos containing materials will be impacted by the proposed work.
