    This manual discusses the four principle elements of asbestos management program: building surveys, assessment of asbestos-containing materials, abatement projects and operations and maintenance programs in the context of ASTM standards that cover these activities:

    D7521 Standard Test Method for Determination of Asbestos in Soil
    D7886 Standard Practice for Asbestos Exposure Assessments for Repetitive Maintenance and Installation Tasks
    E1368 Standard Practice for Visual Inspection of Asbestos Abatement Projects
    E2356 Standard Practice for Comprehensive Building Asbestos Surveys
    E2394 Standard Practice for Maintenance, Renovation and Repair of Installed Asbestos Cement Products
    E1494 Standard Practice for Encapsulation Testing of Friable Asbestos-Containing Surfacing Materials

    Anyone who disturbs asbestos is at risk. However, it is an especially relevant concern for construction, insulation, and demolition workers, pipefitters, boilermakers, and others who might interact with asbestos found in old buildings. The hazard is very real to home handymen, first-responders and community volunteers. This manual aims to educate others about the most successful methods of preventing harmful disturbance and exposure to asbestos.
