The Advanced Asbestos Awareness for Property Management online safety training from OSHA Education School, when combined with site-specific workplace information is designed to fulfill and satisfy two of OSHA’s standards, which mandate asbestos awareness training. The two standards include the General Industry Standard for Asbestos (29 CFR 1910.1001) and the Construction Industry Standard for Asbestos (29 CFR 1926.1101).
