Before their dangerous health effects were discovered, asbestos and lead were used to construct products found in all kinds of commercial and residential buildings. As a result, construction workers can be at high risk for asbestos or lead exposure, particularly if you work in building demolition and renovation.

In this course, you'll learn about the properties and dangers of asbestos and lead, what materials or activities put you at risk, and how to protect yourself from exposure.

Exposure to asbestos and lead at work can lead to others (like family) being exposed after you clock off. Dust on your clothes, skin, and tools can contaminate personal vehicles, furniture, and homes. Understanding asbestos and lead hygiene won't just protect you – it can protect everyone you love.

This course fulfills 1 hour of specialized elective credit toward earning or renewing your Site Safety Training (SST) card.

Once you complete the lessons and pass the 10-question final exam with a score of at least 75%, you'll get a certificate of completion right away. You get 3 attempts to pass the final.

Note, THIS IS AN AWARENESS-LEVEL TRAINING ONLY and does not provide any other qualification or authorization outside of the Site Safety Training Card.

To legally and safely identify, maintain, or remove asbestos or lead, you need to complete U.S. EPA-approved training and obtain all mandatory state- and city-specific licenses. Failure to do so may result in fines or a possible prison sentence.
