Asbestos & Understanding Your Responsibilities as a Building Owner


Date and Time:
6/15/2016 at 3:00 PM, Duration: 60 Minutes


Description:

If there is one thing that has caused more controversy in recent years for apartment complex owners and commercial building owners in the Indianapolis area, it is the continued enforcement by the Marion County Health Department (MCHD) to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) 29CFR 1926.1101(K), Communication of Hazards. Section K of OSHA’s Construction Industries Asbestos Standard outlines the duties of the building and facility owners to communicate information concerning asbestos hazards.

So you’re probably asking yourself, “How does this apply to me since I don’t own or manage an apartment complex in Indianapolis?”  Well, not to be the bearer of bad news, but this regulation applies to all building owners or property managers nationwide.  The focus of this webinar will be to assist with understanding the reason for this enforcement and the responsibilities of building owners, which will include the following topics: to inspect or not to inspect, identification of suspect or presumed asbestos containing materials, operations and maintenance plans, notification of employees and occupants, and requirements for employee training.

  **This webinar is eligible for 1 CMP toward your CHMM re-certification.
