FACILITIES, MAINTENANCE, AND CUSTODIAL EMPLOYEES (including Building Maintenance Engineers)
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires that all employees who will be working in a maintenance/custodial capacity at school facilities receive asbestos awareness training. This training is mandated by OSHA, enforced by the EPA, and required once per year. This is not a certification to handle asbestos, it is only an awareness training.
Please refer to the following documents for additional information as it pertains to Human Resources.
