OSEA Safety Training
New York State Asbestos Training
Asbestos in the workplace is a serious matter. OSEA is a licensed NYS asbestos contractor and can help with your training, project planning, execution, and sampling. Our staff consists of asbestos handlers, air sampling technicians, and project monitors.
It is crucial, and more importantly a regulatory requirement, that employees in the asbestos abatement industry are first trained on how to safely work with asbestos so as not to harm themselves or others.
Successfully completing the NYS Certified Asbestos courses, which are designed specifically for your job tasks, will provide you with the proper credentials to work on an asbestos project within the state.
