BLDG 1100 - Managing Asbestos in Your Buildings

Building Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

Asbestos was widely used in a variety of construction materials throughout Canada until the 1980s. Due to its widespread use and hazardous properties, owners and operators of buildings have an obligation to determine if their building contains asbestos and if so, to implement systems to ensure that those living and/or working within the building are educated on the hazards and that controls are put in place to prevent exposures. 'Managing Asbestos in Your Buildings' is a practical course designed to educate building owners and operators on the hazards of asbestos, the historic use of asbestos, and the legislative responsibilities of both building owners and the individuals who manage activities within buildings that contain asbestos. Students will be provided with templates and tools to enable them to implement an effective Asbestos Management Program to meet these requirements and demonstrate due diligence.
