Abstract
An educational program was developed for asbestos (1332214) treatment in schools at the University of Missouri Columbia campus. The program consisted of four phases: an on campus, in house training program for school employees, with the development of prototype training materials; removal of asbestos using all correct protocols from a room on the campus, with refinement of training materials; statewide workshops on proper asbestos handling for workers and professionals; and continuing promotion of the workshop concept and distribution of workshop training materials. There were 92 participants in the program, including contractors and workers, and officials from federal and state agencies, construction inspectors, industrial hygienists, lawyers, industrial safety and health professionals, and educators. The curriculum format proved to be workable and there was a first hand understanding of the equipment and procedures involved in safe asbestos removal work. The authors conclude that post workshop analyses show that most of the objectives of the training session were met.
