Safety & Regulation Information

F.A.Q.

It is crucial for commercial property owners and managers to prioritize asbestos identification and management to safeguard the health and well-being of occupants and comply with regulatory requirements.

When should we conduct an asbestos survey and what should be included?

1. Asbestos Survey: Conduct a comprehensive asbestos survey performed by certified professionals to identify the presence, location, and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in the building.

2. Historical Documentation: Review historical records, building plans, and documentation to identify potential asbestos-containing materials used in construction or renovations.

3. Material Sampling: Collect samples of suspect materials for laboratory analysis. Samples should be taken by qualified personnel following established protocols to avoid fiber release.

4. Visual Inspection: Regularly inspect building materials for signs of damage, deterioration, or wear, as these factors can release asbestos fibers.

5. Awareness Training: Train maintenance staff and relevant personnel to recognize potential asbestos-containing materials and report any concerns promptly.

What are the health risks associated with asbestos exposure?

1. Asbestosis: Prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to asbestosis, a chronic lung condition characterized by scarring and difficulty breathing.

2. Lung Cancer: Inhalation of asbestos fibers increases the risk of lung cancer, particularly in individuals with significant asbestos exposure over time.

3. Mesothelioma: Asbestos exposure is a major cause of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer affecting the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart.

4. Pleural Disease: Asbestos exposure may cause pleural plaques, thickening, or effusion, impacting the pleura (lining of the lungs).

5. Other Respiratory Issues: Asbestos exposure can contribute to respiratory issues such as coughing, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing.

6. Latency Period: Health effects may not manifest immediately; there is often a long latency period between exposure and the development of asbestos-related diseases.

7. Occupational Risks: Workers in commercial buildings with asbestos-containing materials may face higher occupational risks, particularly during maintenance, renovation, or demolition activities.

8. Secondary Exposure: Occupants and visitors may be at risk of secondary asbestos exposure if ACMs are disturbed or deteriorate.

What are the potential consequences of delaying or neglecting asbestos abatement?

Delaying or neglecting asbestos abatement can lead to severe consequences, including:

1. Increased Health Risks: Extended exposure to asbestos fibers poses a heightened risk of respiratory diseases, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

2. Regulatory Non-Compliance: Neglecting asbestos abatement may result in violations of local and federal regulations, leading to legal consequences and fines.

3. Building Occupancy Restrictions: Authorities may impose restrictions on building occupancy if asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) pose a significant risk.

4. Decreased Property Value: The presence of asbestos can devalue properties. Delaying abatement may affect property resale or leasing opportunities.

5. Liability Concerns: You may face legal liabilities if asbestos-related health issues arise among occupants, employees, or contractors due to delayed abatement.

6. Compromised Indoor Air Quality: Deteriorating asbestos-containing materials can release fibers into the air, compromising indoor air quality and creating an unhealthy environment.

7. Cost Escalation: Procrastination in addressing asbestos issues can lead to increased costs for remediation. Early abatement is generally more cost-effective than dealing with advanced contamination.
