4 INTRODUCTION Policy Regarding Asbestos Management Purpose of this O&M Program Why is Asbestos a Hazard

5 Introduction Asbestos Management Policy It is the policy of (School Name) and the Diocese of Joliet to provide a management program to minimize the potential airborne hazards of asbestos fibers. This management program shall apply to maintenance staff, employees, occupants, and visitors, and comply with federal, state, and local regulations until all (ACBM) materials are removed from (School Name). Purpose of this O&M Program It is the purpose of this Special Operations and Maintenance of Asbestos Program (O&M Program) to implement unique training and work procedures for: 1) Cleaning areas where asbestos fibers have been previously released, 2) Preventing future fiber disturbance and release, and 3) Monitoring the condition of ACBM. This O&M Program is designed to minimize the potential airborne hazards of asbestos fibers to maintenance staff, employees, occupants, and visitors until all ACBM are removed from (School Name). This program is comprised of four major components: Assignment of responsibilities and functions that relate to asbestos Training of certain employees that will be involved with asbestos functions Formalize Procedures for maintaining records of all asbestos related activities Provide formal procedures for maintenance activities that will impact asbestos containing materials Why is Asbestos a Hazard? Asbestos is a term for a group of naturally occurring minerals that separate into microscopic fibers. The mineral rock is mined and milled for use in over 3000 commercial products. The six asbestos minerals are: chrysotile, amosite, tremolite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, and actinolite. These small, durable asbestos fibers are incombustible (fire proof) and have excellent thermal and electrical insulating properties. However, it is these characteristics which make asbestos a hazardous environment contaminate. 1

6 Asbestos fibers are very difficult to destroy. Because of their long and slender aerodynamic shape, friable asbestos fibers can become suspended in air for long periods of time. Friable means easily crumbled or pulverized under hand pressure. Friable asbestos fibers can enter the air when disturbed or damaged and contaminate the building environment. Once in the air, building occupants can inhale these fibers. Although most fibers will not remain in the lungs, those that become lodged will remain permanently. These permanently lodged fibers cause disease which manifest themselves years later. Diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. This facility is implementing this SPECIAL OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE OF ASBESTOS PROGRAM to help protect building occupants from the hazards of airborne asbestos fibers by maintaining all ACBM in good and undamaged condition. For the purpose of this O&M program, the asbestos materials are divided into three categories: Thermal System Insulation Floor and Ceiling Tiles Surfacing Materials Special O&M procedures are listed for each of the 3 ACBM forms. Several aspects of the O&M program are the same for all 3 categories of asbestos. However, it is important to differentiate between each O&M procedure so that each specific asbestos form is handled in the appropriate manner. 2

7 SECTION I EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROCEDURES FOR FIBER RELEASE EPISODES 1.0 Fiber Release Emergency Procedure Procedures for Minor and Major Fiber Release Episodes include any situation where damage, deterioration or disturbance of any ACBM results in a significant release of airborne asbestos fibers. The following procedures shall be used in the given situations. 1. Evacuate and/or isolate all personnel from the area. Shut down all HVAC systems connected to the area. Seal off the area as soon as possible and post signs. Restrict access to the area. CALL THE DIOCESE OF JOLIET ASBESTOS DESIGNATED PERSON AT Cleanup procedures following a fiber release episode 1.11 After the emergency situation is under control, special clean-up procedures should be implemented before allowing re-entry. This work should be arranged through the Designated Person of the Diocese of Joliet. No cleaning shall be done by school personnel. 3

8 SECTION 2 O&M PROGRAM RESPONSIBITIES 2.0 General For the Special O&M Program to function properly there must be participation and cooperation from many departments.

15 SECTION 5 RECORDKEEPING 5.1 Policy Records must be kept of all events that impact asbestos containing materials in the school facility. Records shall become a part of the management plan with one copy to be kept in the Principal's Office Management Plan and one copy sent to and maintained by the Designated Person.

17 SECTION Policy O&M PROCEDURES It is policy of the Diocese of Joliet that no school employees shall engage in the repair, enclosure, encapsulation, removal, or any way disturbance of asbestos containing materials. All work that will impact asbestos will impact asbestos will be conducted by outside state licensed contractors per the Illinois Asbestos Abatement Act and 40 CFR O&M procedures for school Maintenance Staff Identification of suspect ACBM a. Any building material suspected of containing asbestos shall be handled as ACBM. If a material has not been sampled by a licensed asbestos inspector, and analyzed by a NVLAP approved laboratory, the material shall be considered to be assumed asbestos containing material. b. Materials requiring testing for the presence of asbestos shll be tested in the following manner: ACBM Inspections 1. Contact the LEA's Designated Person (Richard Kaffka). 2. The LEA's Designated Person will have the suspect materials sampled and analyzed by an accredited lab. 3. Work will proceed only after the LEAs Designated Person has determined whether or not asbestos is present. a The schools "trained person" shall insure that all ACBM and suspect ACBM is inspected every (but not limited to) 6 months for damage or deterioration. b. A report detailing the findings of the inspection shall be included in the management plan. c. Any damage noted shall initiate the appropriate response action by contacting the Diocese of Joliet Designated Person. d. Any debris near ACBM shall initiate special cleaning procedures by the appropriate outside personnel. 13

18 6.2.3 Special Cleaning and Maintenance Procedures a. Never dry buff or polish asbestos containing floors. b. Never perform any maintenance work in areas suspected to have been contaminated by asbestos fibers. c. All maintenance and repair work involving pipe, boiler, and/or duct insulation shall be assumed to be asbestos containing unless laboratory analysis indicates that no asbestos is present. d. All maintenance personnel shall refrain from disturbing or handling ACBM. All activities resulting in the disturbance or handling of ACBM must be cleared through the LEA's Designated Person. e. It will be assumed that all floor tiles and ceiling panels contain asbestos unless testing has determined otherwise. Any damage, drilling, sawing, cutting, etc., may result in the release of asbestos fibers. Therefore, all maintenance and repair activities involving ceiling and floor tiles shall initiate a call to the Asbestos Designated Person prior to any work that may result in the disturbance of these materials. 14

19 SECTION 7 O&M PROCEDURES 7.1 Labeling The Diocese of Joliet Designated Person and the school's 'trained person" must make sure that warning labels are attached immediately adjacent to any friable and nonfriable ACBM in routine maintenance areas (such as boiler rooms) of each school building. Such material includes friable ACBM that was responded to by a means other than removal, for example, encapsulation, and ACBM for which no response action was carried out. Classrooms, libraries, and cafeterias are a few examples of rooms that are not considered routine maintenance areas. All labels must be displayed prominently in readily visible locations and remain posted until the ACBM that is labeled is removed. Warning labels must be made readily visible with large print or bright color, and shall read "DANGER : Asbestos Area. Cancer and Lung Disease Hazard. Authorized Personnel Only. Respirators and Protective Clothing are required in this Area. Breathing Asbestos Dust may be Hazardous to your Health. 15
