Course Description

This course examines the history, properties, and health effects of asbestos and outlines several practices for preventing the devastating side effects of exposure to asbestos-containing material. Because the guidelines for asbestos mitigation vary for each province or territory in Canada, employers are responsible for familiarizing themselves and their workers with the guidelines specific to the province or territory they are in to ensure a safe work environment.

The Canada OHS Construction Asbestos course consists of content, graphics, audio, self check (non-scored) questions, and a final exam.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often is retraining or recertification required?

The employer must develop and implement an exposure control plan meeting the requirements of his or her province’s legislature that governs workers’ compensation, health, and safety.Retraining is required in at least the following situations:
(1) Where changes at the worksite present a hazard about which an employee has not been previously trained; or
(2) Where changes present a hazard in which an employee has not been previously trained; or
(3) Where inadequacies in an affected employee’s work involving asbestos indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite proficiency.

What are the governing regulations?

Because workers’ compensation is a provincial responsibility, this course provides generic information that employers can use to develop their own site-specific procedures for asbestos exposure. If a worker is or may be exposed to potentially harmful levels of asbestos, the employer must develop and implement an exposure control plan meeting the requirements of his or her province’s legislature that governs workers’ compensation, health, and safety.
