The governing authority of any school operated under the defense dependents education system provided for under the Defense Dependents Education Act of 1978 (20 U.S.C. 921 et seq.)

3 LEA Responsibilities Section of AHERA regulations LEA must ensure that the designated person has adequate training to perform duties assigned under this section

4 LEA Responsibilities (con t.) Ensure work carried out in accordance to regulation: Inspections Re-inspections Periodic surveillances Management plan update Proper response actions

5 LEA Responsibilities (con t.) Ensure: Custodial / Maintenance workers trained - 2 hr. awareness Workers, building occupants, legal guardians - Informed once each school year - Asbestos activities - Completed or planned

6 Ensure: LEA Responsibilities (con t.) Short term workers -Utilities workers -Telephone repair -Exterminators Provide information pertaining to location of know and/or suspected ACBM they may come in contact with

7 LEA Responsibilities (con t.) Ensure: Warning labels posted Management plans are available for review Designated person to oversee program

8 LEA Designee Training Training required Knowledge of : Health effects of asbestos Detection, identification, and assessment of ACM Options for controlling ACBM Asbestos Management programs Relevant Federal and State Regulations Conflict of interest

9 History

10 History Past Uses: Insulation of Huts Strengthen Pottery Mummification Cremation Lamp Wicks Clothing and Cloths Movies

11 Modern Uses Fireproofing Flooring material Thermal Systems Insulation Adhesives / Glues Plaster Acoustical material

12 Continuing Legacy

13 Definitions

14 Definitions ACM (Asbestos Containing Material) Material that contains greater than one percent (>1%) asbestos (OSHA/EPA) ACBM (Asbestos Containing Building Material) Is ACM in building construction material or mechanical system material only

15 Definitions PACM (Presumed Asbestos Containing Material) Material installed prior to 1980 Surfacing material TSI (thermal systems insulation Resilient floor covering

16 Definitions Friable Asbestos, when dry, that can be crushed, crumbled, pulverized and reduce to powder by hand pressure

17 Health Effects

18 Why is asbestos dangerous

19 Health Effects How does a contaminant enter our bodies? Inhalation Primary Route of Entry for Asbestos Ingestion Secondary Route of Entry for Asbestos Absorption Injection

20 Health Effects

21 Health Effects Asbestosis Fibrotic scarring of the lung Restrictive lung disease Reduces lung capacity Dose Response Relationship Latency Period years Progressive disease in the absence of continued exposure

22 Health Effects Lung Cancer Abnormal growth of cells in the lung Dose-Response Relationship Latency Period 30 years Increased Risk with Smoking

23 Health Effects

24 Mesothelioma Rarest of the diseases Health Effects Cancer of the chest cavity or in the lining of the abdominal cavity No dose response relationship Latency Period years

25 Health Effects Summary

26 Detection, Identification, Assessment

27 Inspection and Assessing the Condition of ACM

28 Summary of Process Assemble equipment and supplies Obtain floor plan Walk through of building Enter every room and utility space Locate ACM materials specified in construction documents Test all surfaces for friability For all suspect materials to be sampled, identify and draw homogenous sampling areas All friable suspect materials and TSI, identify appropriate functional spaces Assess all friable suspect ACM and TSI

29 Surfacing Materials Material that is sprayed-on or trowelled on Spray-on fireproofing Plaster Hard Plaster Acoustical Plaster Textured Paint Substrates that are not suspect Cinder blocks Steel Wood

30 Thermal System Insulation Heat gain or heat loss Materials that can be considered non-asbestos Fiberglass Rubber Styrofoam Suspect TSI Boiler and breeching block Insulation Cements and pipe fititng muds Gasketing material

31 Miscellaneous Materials Primary materials Floor sheeting & mastics Ceiling tiles Other Suspect Transite Sheetrock Joint Compound Levelastics Glazings and Caulkings Construction adhesives

32 Conducting Inspection Samples are to be collected down to the substrate

33 Conducting Inspection Check under fiberglass insulation

34 Conducting Inspections Was new fiberglass insulation checked for contamination?

35 Inspecting Boilers Was interior sampled? Firebrick Cement Mortar Gasketing Rope

36 Duct Insulation Was the interior accessed for contamination? Is the insulation fiberglass? Was the seams and edges inspected? Is there adhesive underneath the fiberglass insulation?

37 Conducting Inspections Determine the extent of material throughout the building

38 Conducting Inspections Was the exterior surveyed? Asbestos adhesive on roof slate

39 Asbestos flooring layers 1. Asbestos floor tile and mastic 2. Asbestos leveling compound 3. Concrete floor layer 4. Concrete floor

40 Conducting Inspections Were machines and electrical closets accessed?

41 Assessment of Suspect Asbestos- Containing Materials

42 Suspect material tested for friability

43 Assessment Procedures Assessment of Friable Materials 1. Damaged or significantly damaged friable TSI 2. Damaged friable surfacing ACBM 3. Significantly damaged friable surfacing ACBM 4. Damaged or significantly damaged friable miscellaneous 5. ACBM 6. ACBM with potential for damage 7. ACBM with potential for significant damage 8. Any remaining friable ACBM or friable suspected ACBM

44 Assessment of Surfacing Material Significantly Damaged Surface crumbling or blistering 10% Distributed or 25% Localized 10% material hanging from the surface, deteriorated or showing adhesive failure Water stains, gouges, or mars 10% Distributed or 25% Localized

45 Assessment of Surfacing Material Damaged The surface crumbling, blistered, water-stained, gouged, marred or otherwise abraded Less than 10% Distributed or Less than 25% Localized Good Condition Material with no visible damage or deterioration, or showing only very limited damage or deterioration

46 Assessment of TSI Significantly Damaged Missing jackets on 10% of the piping Crushed, heavily gouged, or punctured insulation 10% Distributed or 25% Localized

47 Assessment of TSI Damaged A few water stains Less than 10% insulation missing jackets Crushed, heavily gouged, or punctured insulation Less than 10% Distributed or Less than 25% Localized Good Condition Material with no visible damage or deterioration, or showing only very limited damage or deterioration

48 Potential for Disturbance Contact Damage Vibration Damage Air Erosion

49 Options for controlling Asbestos

50 Response Actions Operations & Maintenance Removal Encapsulation Repair Enclosure

51 Response Actions AHERA Says: Must be implemented in a timely fashion Must Protect Human Health & the Environment (HH&E) and, the school district may select the least burdensome response action.

52 Response Actions AHERA Says: For damaged or significantly damaged TSI, at least repair the material. Remove if it is not feasible Maintain the material in an intact and undamaged state

53 Response Actions AHERA Says: For damaged miscellaneous material or damaged surfacing material, the school may select removal, encapsulation, enclosure or repair.

54 Response Actions AHERA says: That for significantly damaged miscellaneous material or significantly damaged surfacing material; Must immediately isolate the functional space and restrict access, unless it is not necessary to protect HH&E Consider removal unless Enclosure or Encapsulation will protect HH&E

55 Response Actions AHERA Says: For all other friable material, the minimal response action is operations and maintenance. If the material is non-friable, no response action is required, unless the material becomes friable.

56 Response Actions AHERA Says: For damaged or significantly damaged TSI, at least repair the material. Remove if it is not feasible Maintain the material in an intact and undamaged state
