Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral widely used in the US before it was largely banned from being used in the manufacture of most household products. The mineral is made of electricity, heat, and corrosion-resistant fibers, which is why it was extensively used as an insulation material in construction.
Other materials like cement, plastic, paper and cloth become stronger when combined with asbestos. Still, despite its useful qualities, asbestos is quite toxic. Inhaling or ingesting asbestos particles can cause a rare type of cancer, mesothelioma, and other health problems. As such, it’s important to stay away from the mineral and, if need be, hire an asbestos technician to examine the material you think might have asbestos.
At Satori Group, we deal with asbestos abatement and can train you in the best practices in handling asbestos. We offer an asbestos supervisor course that will ensure that you are certified and fit to work in asbestos abatement services.
There is no safe amount of asbestos exposure that is safe, so you should try as much as possible to avoid it. Some of the careers that have a high-risk asbestos exposure include:
While there have been efforts to ban asbestos use in the US, the mineral isn’t fully yet prohibited. However, organizations like OSHA have regulated the mineral use, and any product containing over 1% asbestos is labeled as asbestos-containing. Asbestos detected at anything less than 1% is not considered asbestos containing material, but should still be considered a potential health hazard when handled incorrectly.
With the continued use of asbestos in the US today careers as asbestos technicians and supervisors are on the rise. This is where our asbestos supervisor training course comes in.
