1 MEMORANDUM DATE: January 6, 2015 TO: FROM: Campus Community Tim Ridley, CSP, ARM-P Director, Safety and Risk Management SUBJECT: Asbestos Notification 2015 California Health and Safety Code, (Asbestos Notification) requires the owner of any building constructed prior to 1979 to notify employees in writing of the existence of asbestos in those buildings. California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) has an Asbestos Management Plan that provides procedures for asbestos work and employee protection. This plan complies with requirements of the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 8, 1529 Construction Safety Order and 5208 General Industry Safety Orders. Campus-wide asbestos surveys have been conducted, and provide comprehensive information on the location and types of asbestos materials located within our facilities. This information is compiled in a data base which is available in the Office of Safety and Risk Management. Asbestos containing building materials are present in many CSUB buildings. As buildings are renovated, or maintenance and repair procedures are completed, these materials are removed. CSUB is committed to safe handling and effective management of asbestos. The University employs one Certified Building Inspector/Management Planner (BI/MP) in Safety and Risk Management and three licensed asbestos Contractor/Supervisors (C/S) in Facilities Management. Our licensed professionals can conduct building material surveys, coordinate and supervise asbestos construction activities, perform air monitoring, provide training, and remove limited amounts of asbestos containing materials (ACM). Asbestos is most hazardous when it is friable. The term "friable" means that the asbestos is easily crumbled by hand pressure, potentially releasing fibers into the air. Asbestos-containing ceiling tiles, floor tiles/mastic,
2 undamaged laboratory cabinet tops, roofing, fire doors, exterior stucco, etc. will not readily release asbestos fibers unless they are disturbed or damaged in some way. If you are uncertain as to whether or not a material contains asbestos, you must assume it does. Never drill, hammer, cut, saw, break, damage, move, or disturb any ACM or suspect material. The attached list identifies general locations where ACM may be encountered within your building; the complete database is available in the Office of Safety and Risk Management. Should you have any specific questions related to this information, or you would like to read or have a copy of the complete Asbestos Management Plan, please contact Sheila Barela at (661) or Tim Ridley at (661)
