California requires all contractors or employers who engage in asbestos-related work involving 100 square feet or more of asbestos-containing material to register with the Cal-OSHA Asbestos Contractors’ Registration unit. Those engaged in cement-pipe work can be exempted from this requirement if their employees take this four-hour course.
Students learn what asbestos is, where it is found, when it is dangerous, and how to avoid disturbing it (the same content that is covered in the two-hour Asbestos Awareness course). In addition, they become familiar with OSHA regulations and safer work practices that specifically apply to the disturbance of asbestos-cement pipe. Trainees who are CDPH-certified in water distribution receive two hours of California Department of Public Health (CDPH) safety credit for completing this course.
After receiving initial certification with this four-hour course, workers can renew their certification by taking an annual 2-hour Asbestos Cement Pipe Refresher.
The cost of each class will be negotiated based on location, number of trainees, and specific client requirements. Please contact us to discuss details of cost and scheduling.
