Every Local Education Agency (school board or other authority responsible for the administration of elementary and secondary schools, including charter schools) is required by AHERA to designate an individual responsible for ensuring compliance with asbestos regulations affecting schools. This seven-hour webinar meets AHERA requirements for the training of that designated person. It is also useful for building and facility managers in facilities other than K-12 schools.
The course covers the material contained in the two-hour Asbestos Awareness class, then adds information specifically targeted to the responsibilities of LEA designated persons. Topics addressed include the record keeping involved with management plans, how to interpret management plans, how to plan abatement jobs and calculate costs, management plan audits, and how to prepare for an EPA inspection. Additional information concerning lead, silica, and other hazardous materials that may affect school maintenance and repairs will be included.
We recommend that the designated person take this class every two to three years due to frequent changes in federal and state asbestos regulations.
