MNL23-2ND: Chapter 2: Comprehensive Building Asbestos Surveys

    Pages: 19    Published: Jan 2005


    THE FIRST STEP IN MANAGING ASBESTOS- containing materials (ACM) is finding out if there are any to be managed, and if so, getting the information to do it properly. This activity is called an inspection in the AHERA regulations, and the individuals who do it are accredited inspectors. To avoid confusion with visual inspection (more on this in Chapter 4), we will use the term building asbestos survey, defined as follows in ASTM Standard Practice for Comprehensive Building Asbestos Surveys (E 2356): “… an activity to determine the presence, location, condition and quantity of asbestos-containing materials in a building or facility, or on the property containing the building or facility.”
