As a general reminder, each UW employee must complete an Asbestos Refresher Training annually.
Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) has completed the annual revision of the five to ten minute online Asbestos Awareness Refresher Training. This instruction supplements the current 20-30 minute introductory General Asbestos Awareness Training.
Both the initial and the annual refresher training are mandated by WA State Dept. Labor and Industries Asbestos Regulations
The information provided below provides links to access the online training:
· General Asbestos Awareness training is available at: http://www.ehs.washington.edu/pubcookie/train/asbestosg/
· The Refresher Asbestos Awareness Training is available at: http://www.ehs.washington.edu/pubcookie/train/asbestosr/
Additionally, EH&S urges all employees of the UW community to:
· Learn more about asbestos by visiting the EH&S asbestos information page at: http://www.ehs.washington.edu/ohsasbestos/index.shtm.
· Observe and read the posters, signage, and labeling which EH&S and Facilities Services are installing to further educate building occupants about asbestos in UW facilities.
Contact the EH&S Asbestos Compliance Analyst, 206-543-7388 or email roysmith at u.washington.edu, if you have further questions about asbestos.
