The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) mandates that an asbestos inspection be conducted prior to most building renovations and demolitions. NESHAP is intended to minimize the release of asbestos fibers during activities that involve the handling of asbestos. In addition, NESHAP specifies work practices to be followed during renovation, demolition, or other abatement activities when friable asbestos is involved.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that building owners disclose information pertaining to the presence of asbestos-containing material in buildings to their employees, contractors, and tenants. Federal Occupational Health’s (FOH) comprehensive asbestos services addresses the provisions of these and other asbestos regulations and will work with your agency to ensure that occupational exposures to asbestos are minimized or eliminated.
