How the US EPA Regulates Asbestos
- Mesothelioma; a rare cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, chest cavity, or abdomen
- Lung cancer that may develop 20 to 50 years after exposure
- Pleural plaques; changes in the membranes surrounding the lungs
- Pleural effusions; abnormal collections of fluid between the lungs and the inside wall of the chest
- 40 CFR 61, Subpart M includes monitoring, control, and reporting requirements for various activities that could emit friable asbestos to the ambient air (that is, the air outside of buildings), including the act of demolishing/renovating an existing structure which has asbestos-containing material (ACM). The rules for controlling asbestos emissions from demolition/renovation activities are found at 40 CFR 61.145
- In schools (40 CFR 763, Subpart E): identifying asbestos-containing material, sampling, and managing in a timely fashion
- In non-OSHA asbestos abatement projects (40 CFR 763, Subpart G): protecting state and local government employees who are not currently protected by OSHA’s asbestos standards
- In certain products (40 CFR 763, Subpart I): prohibiting the manufacture, importation, processing, distribution, and labeling of certain asbestos-containing products

Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
