Who would require an asbestos worker course?
All workers in Alberta who enter a restricted area due to an asbestos hazard must successfully complete the government approved asbestos worker course and be in possession of a valid worker certificate. A “restricted area” is defined as an area of a work site where there is a reasonable chance that the airborne concentration of asbestos, silica, coal dust or lead exceeds or may exceed the occupational exposure limit for one or more of the substances.
