3 The following is a summary of the common forms of ACM found at the University of Manitoba. Included is information on where these materials are generally located on campus, their friability classification and the level of precautions required when working with such materials. Refer to the University Asbestos Management Program manual for specific asbestos work procedures. The information provided below is of a general nature and should not be considered inclusive of all existing materials or conditions at the University. ASBESTOS ON CAMPUS Asbestos is the general name given to a group of naturally occurring silica minerals that are mined for commercial purposes. The most common forms include Chrysotile and Amosite, the lesser known forms include Crocidolite, Tremolite, Anthophyllite and Actinolite. Asbestos has been used extensively as a component in over 3000 building materials throughout the 1900 s. It was incorporated into many materials in order to increase their fire resistance, chemical resistance, durability and flexibility. Founded in 1877, the University of Manitoba has undergone several stages of construction and renovation both at the Fort Garry Campus and Bannatyne Campus. Asbestos containing materials (ACM) are known to be present, in one or more forms, within all buildings constructed prior to Inhalation of airborne asbestos fibers is the main hazard attributed and linked to several forms of lung diseases. Typically asbestos fibers range January 2012 Page 3 of 38

4 from 0.11 to 0.24 micrometers (1/1000 th of a millimeter) and thus have the potential to remain airborne for several hours. An asbestos-containing material will only release airborne fibers when subjected to a physical disturbance. The likelihood of an ACM to release airborne fibers is directly related to its friability and condition. Materials considered friable can be easily reduced to dust by moderate hand pressure. A non-friable material is bound in a matrix, typically resin or cement, which inhibits the release of fibers. The condition of an ACM also may determine the potential to become airborne. Special consideration is required when planning or undertaking renovations and building maintenance where asbestos is known or suspected to be present. January 2012 Page 4 of 38

Prior to being issued a respirator all employees are to complete a confidential medical assessment confirming that they are medically fit to wear a respirator. In addition, all employees must be fit tested according to the CSA Standard Z in order to ensure that the respirator is providing the required level of protection to that worker. Both the confidential medical assessment and the fit testing can be performed at the University s Environmental Health & Safety Office for university employees. January 2012 Page 33 of 38

34 LABELING OF MECHANICAL ROOMS As part of the University Asbestos Management Program, the University has established a signage and labeling protocol for locations that may have ACM s and which are accessible to trained University staff only. These locations include mechanical rooms, crawl spaces, interstitial spaces and similar locations that are secured by locked access or other means. These locations are identified by a red dot (fig. 1) on the entrance to the space. Inside the rooms/spaces, signs (fig. 2) are posted indicating that the area does or may contain asbestos and precautions must be taken as per the University Asbestos Management Program. All suspect material in these spaces shall be treated as ACM, unless testing confirms otherwise. Figure 1 January 2012 Page 34 of 38

35 Figure 2 The University is currently undertaking the installation of additional signage (fig. 3) on the outside of mechanical and service areas where asbestos containing and suspect asbestos containing materials are known to be present. Figure 3 January 2012 Page 35 of 38
