COURSE TITLE: A Guide to Asbestos for Construction and Industry
COURSE NO: C03-058
COURSE PROVIDER: Allen Hughes, P.E.
A Guide to Asbestos for Construction and Industry
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course introduces various methods of protection in construction and industry from the hazards of asbestos exposure. The pathways of asbestos entry to the body will also be introduced.

 

Asbestos is the generic term for a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals with desirable structural, acoustical and thermal properties. Asbestos is found in a wide range of products once used in construction and industry. Very few asbestos-containing products are currently being installed. Most worker exposures occur during the removal of asbestos. Asbestos fibers enter the body by the inhalation or ingestion of airborne particles that become embedded in the tissues of the respiratory or digestive systems. Exposure to asbestos can cause disabling or fatal diseases.

 

The 3 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical, mechanical and structural engineers, as well as managers in construction and industry, who are interested in learning more about asbestos protection.

COURSE TITLE: Lead in Construction
COURSE NO: C03-027
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Lead in Construction
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the OSHA Lead in Construction Standard which regulates lead exposures in the construction industry.

 

Lead is heavily used in the construction industry. It is primarily used in paint (known as lead-based paint) because it increases durability, speeds drying and inhibits corrosion. When working with construction or demolition projects involving lead-based paint; workers tend to breath in lead as dust, fume or mist. Inhalation of lead can cause damage to the central nervous system, reproductive system and other body organs.

 

OSHA recognizes that lead handling activities present serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore, OSHA developed the Lead in Construction Standard to protect employees against lead hazards by regulating lead exposures in the construction industry.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to employers, building owners, lead inspectors/designers, engineers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects that require lead handling.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Definition of lead
  • Health hazards of lead exposure
  • Lead usage in industry
  • Hazard Assessment
  • Medical Surveillance
  • Medical Removal Provisions

  • Engineering Controls
  • Housekeeping and Personal Hygiene
  • Personal Protective Clothing
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Employee Information and Training
