Asbestos Awareness in the Workplace


In partnership with WorkSafeBC, the entire month of seminars, webinars and Talk to an Expert sessions are free in June! It’s first come first served, so do register early. We will be opening a wait list once we’re sold out.

Buildings constructed prior to 1990 are still rife with an invisible hazard: asbestos.

In fact, this dangerous mineral remains the number one killer of workers in B.C. With any sort of demolition or renovation work, it’s vital to keep workers protected from asbestos exposure. Join us for this FREE seminar and become familiar with the risks surrounding asbestos. You’ll discover how to identify common asbestos-containing materials and the regulatory requirements you need to know prior to disturbing asbestos-containing materials.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover how and where asbestos exposure may occur
  • Steps to take to protect you and your staff
  • The regulations surrounding asbestos-containing materials

Presented by Jeff Clare and Ashley Teister, WorkSafeBC.

This seminar is hosted at Small Business BC in Vancouver and delivered to other locations via live webinar. Please note: all webinar participants will also receive access to a recording for seven days after the live session.
