Asbestos Abatement Supervisor

Asbestos Abatement Supervisor Location Wynnewood, OK Job Type Full-Time Regular Min Experience 4 Years Position Id 11224 Job Description Asbestos abatement workers are indispensable at construction sites where buildings undergo demolition or renovation. They remove huge amounts of asbestos materials from industrial buildings, residential complex, plants, and factories.

Asbestos abatement technicians are responsible for handling and removing these asbestos remains. Asbestos abatement workers are responsible for cleaning up construction by removing asbestos from surfaces, assembling the debris, and finally properly disposing of the asbestos materials in accordance with OSHA and EPA guidelines. They are responsible for sealing off the construction area in order to prevent contamination of natural resources and adjacent buildings.

During the abatement process, technicians use different types of hand and power tools. The quality of air in the area of construction requires constant monitoring. Asbestos abatement workers keep an eye on the air by putting on respirators to ensure that endurable quantities of asbestos particles are released.

Workers must also be careful regarding personal safety as unhealthy and imprudent exposure to asbestos materials can prove to be detrimental leading to asbestos-related diseases. They must use personal protective suits, disposable gloves, coveralls, safety glasses, face shields and ear guards. These workers often work under certified site supervisors.

Asbestos abatement workers are required to abide by certain guidelines pertaining to hazardous waste handling norms. The technicians must be well conversant with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) or Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA). The following are some of the tasks a typical Asbestos worker would perform. 1) Removes asbestos from ceilings, walls, beams, boilers, and other structures, following hazardous waste handling guidelines:

Assembles scaffolding and seals off work area, using plastic sheeting and duct tape. 2) Positions mobile decontamination unit or portable showers at entrance of work area. 3) Builds connecting walkway between mobile unit or portable showers and work area, using handtools, lumber, nails, plastic sheeting, and duct tape. 4) Positions portable air evacuation and filtration system inside work area. 5) Sprays chemical solution over asbestos covered surfaces, using tank with attached hose and nozzle, to minimize airborne particles. 6) Cuts and scrapes asbestos from surfaces, using knife and scraper. 7) Shovels asbestos into plastic disposal bags and seals bags, using duct tape. 8) Cleans work area of loose asbestos, using vacuum, broom, and dust pan. 9) Places asbestos in disposal bags and seals bags, using duct tape. 10) Dismantles scaffolding and temporary walkway, using handtools, and places plastic sheeting and disposal bags into transport bags. 11) Seals bags, using duct tape, and loads bags into truck. Education and Training Requirements Anybody with a high school diploma can apply for the position of asbestos abatement technician. However, the job involves adept handling of machinery and exposure to hazardous materials, so aspiring candidates should complete some kind of practical training course before joining.

Generally, employers provide on-the-job instructions that help the employees to meet government standards. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA) standards, employers must provide in-house training based on the guidelines outlined by OSHA. In order to perform professionally as asbestos abatement workers, one must complete a 32 hour Asbestos Worker Training Course by an EPA Accredited Training that teach essential asbestos removal techniques through academic instructions and hands-on training programs.

Fundamental knowledge of mathematics is required while performing conversions and calculations to neutralize contaminants. Since the work area concerns buildings, a background in construction can often be helpful. Required Licenses and Certificates
