Asbestos is everywhere in our older buildings. The asbestos manufacturing industry found a way of using the asbestos mineral in over 3000 products, from building materials to insulation products. Chances are that if you are working in a facility that was built before 1990 you have asbestos lurking about and you probably know it.

If you know that your facility has asbestos; “Asbestos Awareness Training” is required by the Washington State Department of Occupational Health and Safety (DOSH) for all employees working on a job site that currently contains or has contained asbestos.

WAC-296-62-07722 is the standard for Asbestos Awareness Training.  A Full Copy of the standard can be found here
