Asbestos Awareness Course
Because of how harmful asbestos is for human health, every business must ensure that any employee who may encounter asbestos or asbestos containing materials (ACMs) at work has the knowledge, instruction, and level of training to safely work around it. This is necessary both for the safety of the employee, as well as for the safety of the people they work with.

What Is Asbestos Awareness?
This Asbestos Awareness program aims to provide both workers and supervisors with the necessary knowledge to safely avoid and work with or around asbestos. Its primary focus is to teach students how to properly contain asbestos or ACMs (asbestos containing materials), as well as how to protect themselves in case they are required to work in an asbestos-contaminated environment.
Throughout the training, workers learn more about the toxic effects of asbestos on human health, the environments where asbestos is likely to be present at work, optimal safety procedures in case of an uncontrolled release of the silicate mineral, but also how to minimize their risk of exposure to ACMs.
Who Needs Asbestos Awareness?
It is recommended that both current employees and potential job candidates who may come in contact with asbestos or ACMs receive proper training. Many applicants look to complete this training prior to their interview as a way to enhance their hiring prospects. Meanwhile, businesses can acquire this course in bulk to ensure their compliance with the latest safety standards at an affordable price.
Employees will most likely require Asbestos Awareness training in the following industries:
- Energy & Electricity.
- Automotive & Manufacturing.
- Education & Research.
Who Is Responsible for Asbestos Awareness Training?
Within the Canadian jurisdiction, businesses and employers have a legal obligation to guarantee safety training for their workers. This means they are required to purchase and implement Asbestos Awareness courses where such hazards might be encountered.
Employees are also legally required to undergo the mandatory safety training provided by their employers. Afterwards, it is their responsibility to implement the knowledge and techniques they have acquired in order to guarantee both their own safety, as well as that of their colleagues.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To successfully complete the Asbestos Awareness certification, workers must be able to accurately describe all of the health hazards associated with the silicate mineral’s effect on the human health, as well as the most common types of asbestos they are likely to encounter in their workplace. Furthermore, they must have a firm grasp of the protocol that must be followed in case of an asbestos emergency.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
The Asbestos Awareness certification should be renewed within one year from the course’s previous completion. This ensures that the life-threatening hazards associated with working around this mineral are minimized or, where this is possible, completely eliminated.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Asbestos Awareness is commonly acquired with safety certifications such as Respiratory Protection, WHMIS 2015, and/or Personal Protective Equipment.
