"Disturbance is what leads to exposure."
-- Acting US Surgeon General, 2009
Based on the classic programs Asbestos Awareness: Living with a Rattlesnake and Asbestos Awareness: Don’t Wake a Sleeping Bear, Asbestos Awareness -- Do Not Disturb contains new and updated information, graphics, photos and videos.

The program forms the core of a two-hour course, leaving ample time to answer questions from workers. It is most effective when attendees are provided with information on asbestos-containing materials in the building where they work. Ideal for

  • Custodians, maintenance workers and others who might contact asbestos-containing materials or who work near them (OSHA Construction Industry Class IV and General Industry)
  • Maintenance workers who might disturb asbestos-containing materials and will receive an additional 14 hours of training (OSHA Construction Industry Class III)

The program is professionally narrated and run about 48 minutes. This program is a perfect supplement to other materials used in training for AHERA accreditation and state licensing requirements. See Additional information for Training Providers including examination questions and AHERA six-month surveillance training.
