Course Description


Florida CILB Course Approval Number: 0009005

This interactive distance-learning course is designed to emphasize hazard identification, avoidance and control – not standards, in an effort to train workers on precautions against lead in their work environment. No attempt has been made to treat the topic exhaustively and it is not to be taken as a substitute for any of the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 or for any standards issued by the US Department of Labor. The course includes a series of quizzes designed to test the contractors grasp of each subject presented. To receive credit for this course, the contractor must obtain a passing score of 70% or higher on the combined score of all quizzes.
