ASBESTOS AWARENESS:

ASBESTOS AWARENESS

TRAINING OUTLINE:

TRAINING OUTLINE What is Asbestos? Health Effects Associated with Exposure Defense Mechanisms Smoking Location of Asbestos-Containing Building Materials (ACBM) and Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) Recognition of Damage Emergency Procedures and Contacts Rules and Regulations Abatement Questions and TEST

Training Requirements:

Training Requirements 2 Hour Annual Awareness Training Asbestos - Uses and Forms Location of Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) Recognition of Damage Names and Telephone Numbers of Program Manager and Emergency Personnel

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?:

WHAT IS ASBESTOS? Naturally occurring mineral Includes chrysotile, amosite and crocidolite In more than 3,000 building products & materials Popularly used as surfacing material, Thermal System Insulation (TSI) and more Desirable to use because of sound absorption, tensile strength, resistance to heat/fire/electrical/chemical damage and affordability Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM) actually contains more than 1% Asbestos Use laboratory testing to identify if a material contains asbestos

HEALTH HAZARDS:

HEALTH HAZARDS Inhalation hazard when asbestos-containing material (ACM) is disturbed (airborne) Asbestosis – lung disease from breathing fibers (scarring of lungs) Lung Cancer Mesothelioma – cancer caused by exposure to asbestos Latency Period (takes diseases 15 to 40 years to show up) Risk factors are based on level & duration of exposure

HUMAN DEFENSE MECHANISMS:

HUMAN DEFENSE MECHANISMS The following try to filter the asbestos: Nose & mouth Mucous-lined breathing passages Cilia –small hairs lining nose & trachea

SMOKING:

SMOKING Asbestos exposure combined with smoking: Impairs the body’s defense mechanism Increases risk of lung cancer

LOCATION OF ACBM:

LOCATION OF ACBM Asbestos-Contained Building Materials (ACBM) are found in the following: Surfacing Materials – popcorn ceilings, walls Thermal System Insulation (known as TSI) – found in insulation of boilers, plumbing, pipes Presumed Asbestos Containing Material (known as PACM) – treat as ACBM until tested utilizing: Laboratory Testing Accredited Inspectors

SUSPECT MATERIAL:

SUSPECT MATERIAL Before starting a project make sure that asbestos-containing material (ACM)will not be disturbed Assume all suspect material contains asbestos Utilize reference list of suspect material If you encounter suspect material when performing work, STOP immediately and contact General Manager

RECOGNITION OF DAMAGE:

RECOGNITION OF DAMAGE Friability (easily crumbles) Water damage visible Delamination (layers separating) Deterioration (breaking down) Physical damage visible Is it a minor or major incident – determined by area & extent of damage

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES:

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES For Major Fiber Release - more than three (3) sq.ft. Stop Work Immediately Do Not Attempt Clean-up Secure Area Notify Supervisor Do Not Reenter Area Until Instructed To Do So

RULES AND REGULATIONS:

RULES AND REGULATIONS Must follow rules & regulations from the following agencies: Office of Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Washington Dept. of Labor & Industries Chautauqua Policy

ACBM MANAGEMENT:

ACBM MANAGEMENT Ways to manage asbestos-containing bulding materials: Abatement – removal utilizing certified contractors Encapsulation – covering & sealing

ABATEMENT ACTIVITIES:

ABATEMENT ACTIVITIES Enclosure Removal Encapsulation

ABATEMENT ACTIVITIES:

ABATEMENT ACTIVITIES Survey to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACM) Contain/enclose work area Post notices of work areas Utilize environmental controls/personal protective equipment (PPE) Monitor air All duties performed by Certified Contractor Oversight performed by Chautauqua Maintenance

Quiz:

Quiz What is Asbestos? Name 3 Building Materials That May Contain Asbestos? Name 3 Diseases Associated With Asbestos Exposure? When is Asbestos a Health Hazard? What Greatly Increases the Risk of Lung Cancer? What Should You Do If You Identify Damaged ACM?
