Asbestos Awareness for Firefighters
This training program was developed to:
- Provide attendees with enough information about the hazards of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) so that during fire suppression efforts and investigative incidents, they can identify potential risks of harmful exposure and protect themselves and others from this risk.
- Familiarize attendees with applicable sections of the WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulation.
- Review safe work procedures that were developed specifically to provide fire fighters information on the precautions that should be taken during building inspections, arson investigations and during and after fighting a fire where asbestos-containing materials may be present.
