Every year, the summer months bring the construction season. So the WSCC issued a reminder that buildings constructed after 1990 may have asbestos-containing materials. If your workers may be exposed to asbestos, provide asbestos awareness training. If a work site is at risk for asbestos, ensure that an inspection is conducted by a qualified person. Also, equip all workers with the proper PPE and understand proper handling procedures in the presence of asbestos. See, the Asbestos Abatement Code of Practice.
