Course Description

Instructor Brandon Neilson, CIH
Principal - Environmental Professional, Impact7G, Inc.

This entry-level online course will provide baseline knowledge about three common health hazards found in older buildings: Asbestos, lead-based paint and Crystalline Silica. Conducted in three 2-hour sessions, this course is intended for any personnel who perform maintenance, inspection, custodial or other work that might bring them into contact with these potential hazards. It is highly recommended for anyone engaged in remodeling, renovation, demolition, historic preservation and/or brownfield redevelopment projects involving older buildings. Attendees will learn how to identify potential sources, understand the health hazards and protect themselves and others against exposure. It will also address a recent change in OSHA's regulations regarding Crystalline Silica and will cover how this change affects various businesses and industries.

This 6-hour course will be presented in three 2-hour webinars, including lecture and Q&A.

Sessions will be held on June 12, 13 and 14, 2018. Each session will be recorded on video, so if you have to miss a live session, you'll have access to the recording on the following day and for 30 days thereafter. Register by May 30 to take advantage of all discounts. (See group rates below.)
