Asbestos Training Curriculum Project. [Draft Copy.]
This package contains two types of asbestos training materials: (1) an instructor's guide for "Asbestos in the Home: A Homeowner's Course"; and (2) "Asbestos Abatement Certification: Small-Scale Worker Student Manual," a 16-hour course, with instructor's guide. The instructor's guide for the 6-hour homeowner's course contains eight sections that cover the following topics: introduction; characteristics of asbestos and the health effects; types of asbestos building materials and their locations in the home; maintenance and removal of asbestos materials; state and federal asbestos laws; working with asbestos abatement contractors; a list of 74 resource people and companies; and a list of 71 instructional resources and publications. Suggestions for class formats, topic outlines, and a glossary are included. The student manual contains nine sections of which the first six are: course introduction; physical characteristics of asbestos; health effects of asbestos exposure; state and federal asbestos laws; personal protection equipment and respiratory protection; and state-of-the-art work practices. The last three sections concern hands-on activities focusing respectively on: (1) employee protection; (2) glovebag techniques; and (3) minienclosures. Student units include objectives, outlines, information sheets, and, in some cases, review questions and learning activities. Many legal and regulatory materials are included. The student guide also contains a glossary. The accompanying instructor's guide provides information on course outlines, practice quizzes, presentation outlines, instructional resources, state and federal regulations, course accreditation, and professional contacts.
