In 1970, congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, requiring the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA’s purpose is to assure safe working conditions for people by promulgating and enforcing standards and by providing OSHA training, outreach, education and assistance. OSHA has become the primary governmental agency which requires training and certification for the protection of employees from occupational exposure to asbestos.
Under the Asbestos Construction Standard, there are many individual training classes. Some of the OSHA safety certifications are offered on a scheduled calendar basis and some are offered on request as needed by the regulated industries.
