MARCOM's interactive course on Asbestos Awareness provides employees with this important information, and also helps employers comply with the training requirements of the OSHA Asbestos Standard. Before the negative health effects of asbestos were fully understood, this hazardous substance was used in thousands of products and building materials. And asbestos-containing materials can be found in many buildings even today. Employees such as custodial, engineering and maintenance staff need to understand the health risks associated with asbestos, be able to recognize asbestos hazards in their workplace and know what to do to protect themselves and others from exposure to asbestos. Areas covered in the course include information on asbestos miracle and menace, the health effects of asbestos, thermal system insulation, surfacing materials, floor and ceiling tiles, protective equipment and safe work practices, decontamination and medical surveillance, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
