Asbestos Awareness for K-State Building Occupants training dates for spring 2019

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Learning and Development

The Department of Environmental Health and Safety will offer Asbestos Awareness for K-State Building Occupants, WTD166, to anyone interested in learning more about what asbestos is, health concerns associated with it and where it can be found on campus.

Sessions will be offered in 11 Edwards Hall on the following dates and times: 3:30-4:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7; 11 a.m. to noon Monday, Feb. 11; 1-2 p.m. Tuesday, March 5; and 11 a.m. to noon Monday, April 1.

Asbestos is most commonly found in buildings constructed before 1981. Asbestos can be discovered in ceilings, between floors, on plumbing, inside some doors, air ducts, floor tiles, glues and mastics, in parts of HVAC systems, as well as other architectural features. As long as the asbestos is not damaged, there is no hazard to building occupants. If the asbestos is damaged, the issue is resolved as quickly as possible to avoid endangering building occupants.

There is no charge to participants, but registration is necessary to ensure adequate seating and materials. Participants may register through HRIS Self-Service or send an email to Megan Hoelting at learning-develop-hr@k-state.edu. When sending an email, please include your name, employee ID, course title, course number (WTD166), and date desired.

Arrangements also can be made with the instructor, Shane Garrett, to deliver the presentation to an individual department. Contact 785-532-5856 or email safety@k-state.edu with questions.
