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.
The second session continues the natural sequence of events in the Management Planner Course. This two-day course is required for all persons who write management plans for schools and for individuals seeking certification as Cal/OSHA Certified Asbestos Consultants (CAC). The student now takes the inspection report and determines a proper response action based on the inspection report utilizing specific Management Planner resources. The student becomes familiar with Management Plans and Operations & Maintenance programs. Regulations are covered in detail, as well as EPA hazard assessment protocols, appropriate selection of response actions including removal, encapsulation, repair and enclosure, development and implementation of Operations and Maintenance Programs. Students will use this knowledge to develop and use a management plan and O & M program in the class.
