EBAA-R Operation and Management Plan for Asbestos

SAD #4 Operation and Management Plan for Asbestos 

1. SAD #4 has performed an original inspection of all facilities for the purpose of determining quantity and location of asbestos containing material (ACM). This inspection was performed by a licensed consultant. This inspection has prioritized materials with a “1” indicating a high potential for fiber release and a “5” indicating a very low potential.

2. SAD #4 will have one person serve as asbestos coordinator. This individual will be referred to as the “designated person.” This individual will be noted on a certification of general responsibilities of the LEA being met, located in the front of the AMP which can be located in the office of the Superintendent.

3. The designated person will be trained, and will continue to stay updated, in order to be able to perform the duties involved. Copies of any trainings of the designated person can be located in the AMP.

4. All custodial/maintenance staff will receive a two hour awareness training which will include a video that explains the uses of asbestos and its health effects. Each member of the maintenance/custodial staff will participate in a walk through of the facility at which time all locations of ACM will be pointed out. Staff will receive training updates in the event of change in asbestos conditions or with a new assignment. Documentation of this training will be located in the individual’s personnel file.

5. Any removal/repair jobs will be performed by the designated person. Any waste material will be disposed of in an appropriate landfill and every job will be documented. The designated person will participate in regular medical monitoring programs as required. Documentation of medical monitoring will be located in the personnel file of the designated person.

6. In the event of a fiber release, the custodial staff will seal off the area and contact the designated person. A licensed asbestos removal company will be hired to resolve the problem. Following any abatement procedure a copy of disposal receipts and final air clearance documentation will be filed with the AMP.

7. Facility occupants will be notified annually that a management plan has been developed and that it is available for viewing in the central office.

8. All outside contractors that might come into contact with asbestos will be notified of the exact location of the ACM and instructed not to impact it.

9. The designated person will conduct periodic surveys of the facilities to determine if there has been a change in the condition of the ACM. These will be conducted every 6 months. Documentation of these inspections can be located in the AMP.

10. Warning labels will be posted in routine maintenance areas such as boiler rooms or custodial closets or other areas where ACM would be likely to be impacted.

11. Every three years a licensed consultant will perform a re-inspection of every SAD #4 facility. The results of the 3 year re-inspection will be located with the ACM in the Office of the Superintendent.

12. Response actions to situations discovered by any formal inspection or in the course of normal business will be based on a variety of factors. The first priority for any remediation efforts will be for areas that students, staff, and the public inhabit. Other factors involved would be time, costs, likelihood of impact, changes in state or federal regulations and scheduled construction, renovation, or consolidation projects.

13. All floors using tile that contains asbestos will be maintained with appropriate protective coatings and maintained regularly using techniques that do not compromise the integrity of the tile itself. High speed dry buffing is expressly prohibited.
