The Building Inspector determines the location and presence of asbestos-containing materials and also assesses the condition of the material. Only an AHERA accredited inspector can sample and inspect material for asbestos. In California, when a person is hired to inspect and sample materials for asbestos, they must be a Certified Asbestos Consultant (CAC) or Certified Site Surveillance Technician (CSST) working under a CAC.This course meets AHERA training requirements as well as Cal/OSHA training requirements for Building Inspectors. The course provides an overview of asbestos containing materials in buildings, the methods to find, categorize and assess their condition and potential for disturbance. The topics covered in detail are: discussion of state and federal regulations, health effects, personal protective equipment, the inspection process, sampling and categorizing the material, recordkeeping, legal liability and insurance. The last day includes a hands-on training using established inspection methodologies and organization of findings is conducted so the student is exposed to real world asbestos building inspection protocols.
