Despite the growing awareness of the serious health effects of exposure to asbestos fibers, the material remains ever-present in the U.S., where asbestos is a regulated—but not banned—toxic substance. View This Product: The World Health Organization estimates that roughly 125 million men and women worldwide are exposed to asbestos in the workplace, 1.3 million of whom are U.S.-based general-industry workers. With almost 2,000 tons of asbestos imported annually into the country, these workers are at risk of developing one or more of the following asbestos-related conditions: • Asbestosis or the progressive scarring of lung tissue; • Lung cancer; • Mesothelioma or cancer in the pleural linings (linings around the lungs and abdomen); and • Other benign (non-cancerous) lung and pleural diseases: pleural plaques, pleural effusions, pleural thickening. View This Product: These conditions were observed to develop most frequently among workers with cumulative exposures of between 5 and 1,200 fiber-year/mL—the equivalent of 40 or more years' worth of occupational exposure to asbestos concentrations of 0.125 to 30 fiber/mL (in air). Currently, U.S. workers are protected from exposure to asbestos in the workplace by three standards issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA): • 29 CFR 1926.1101 (for construction work, which covers the alteration, renovation, repair, and demolition of asbestos-containing buildings and structures); • 29 CFR 1915.1001 (for shipyards); and • 29 CFR 1910.1001 (for general industry, which covers exposure during custodial, janitorial, and maintenance work, brake and clutch repair, and manufacture of asbestos-containing products). The "Asbestos Training Awareness" Regulatory Compliance Kit by Compliance and Safety was produced to help train employees on occupational health and safety with regard to asbestos or asbestos-containing materials. Workers in asbestos jobs, all of whom are required to undergo training, are divided into Classes I to IV. The first three classes handle the removal, installation, repair, and maintenance of systems and structures with asbestos-containing materials; the fourth class handles the cleanup of asbestos-containing waste and debris. The 14-minute DVD/video covers the following topics: • The composition and nature of asbestos; • The hazards and health risks related to asbestos exposure; • OSHA's three Asbestos Standards; • Examples of asbestos-containing materials and their applications; • Measures to limit and deal with asbestos exposure in the workplace; • Monitoring and decontamination of air containing asbestos; • and more. Included in the Regulatory Compliance Kit are a DVD/video program (in English or Spanish), instructional posters and booklets, a comprehensive leader's guide, employee quiz, and scheduling and attendance forms.
