Asbestos is a highly hazardous material that poses a significant health risk for those who are exposed to it. Because of its toxicity, per local and federal standards, contractors involved with asbestos abatement projects must receive accredited training.
MEC aims to make accredited asbestos training as easy and convenient as possible. Our onsite training meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules and regulations, as well as for Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requirements. After the training session, a brief test is given to the attendees, and a certificate is provided upon completion of the training.
Chemicals pose a wide range of health hazards and physical hazards. Employees who work with hazardous chemicals outside of a controlled laboratory setting must receive OSHA-compliant training. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is based on a simple concept—that employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working. They also need to know what protective measures are available to prevent adverse effects from occurring. OSHA designed the HCS to provide employees with the information they need to know.
Private-sector employers must provide chemical information to their workers per OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, also known as HazCom and the “right-to-know” standard. This federal regulation specifies that employees have a right to know about the risks involved with storing and handling such substances. MEC’s training program can inform employees about these hazardous chemicals and their associated dangers.
