Asbestos (Construction)

Overview :

Construction workers engaged in construction work where asbestos-containing materials are present or are presumed to be present (ACM and PACM) face additional hazards on the job. To protect these workers, OSHA has extensive rules for this type of work, including rules for air monitoring, medical surveillance, respiratory protection, safe work practices, and more. These are designed to keep workers safe and free from asbestos-induced illnesses.

  • List some of the hazards associated with asbestos in construction workplaces and recognize some of the ways employers try to minimize those risks, using things like monitoring, communicating, training, medical surveillance, and more

  • Identify the actions you can take and actions you should avoid to stay safe as you work in and around asbestos, including using personal protective equipment (PPE) and engineering controls.
