Asbestos Awareness is designed for the employee and the supervisor to increase their knowledge, awareness and location of suspect asbestos and the hazards that are associated with the suspect item. The course is designed to conform to OSHA, Appendix H. Strong emphasis is on suspect asbestos and awareness. This course is approved by the Ohio EPA for 1.0 regular contact hour for both water supply and wastewater.
Bulk sampling of asbestos is the only way to verify the asbestos content and meet the requirements of the OEPA and the Ohio Department of Health. All industries are required to identify worker exposure to asbestos; this also includes the construction renovation or demolition process.

Demolition Representation (NESHAPS):
During the demolition of structures it is a requirement, as certified in the demolition notice to have a 5 day trained competent person on site to identify any asbestos and other airborne hazards under the NESHAPS regulations. Chem-Tech has an experienced and licensed NESHAPS individual to assist you in complying with this requirement.
Inspections & Surveys:
Based on the general industry and construction standards, all industries including government buildings, construction renovations and demolitions are required to have an asbestos inspection to identify the potential for exposure to asbestos in the work place.
