4 1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Generl The purpose of WVU's Asbestos Mngement Progrm is to resonbly protect employees nd building users from potentil helth hzrds ssocited with sbestos exposures. This Asbestos Opertions Mnul sets forth the procedures nd work prctices employed t WVU to mnge sbestos contining mterils in plce until such time WVU possesses the finncil resources to remove ll sbestos contining mterils through ltertions, demolition, renovtions, nd/or repirs. This mnul hs been prepred to provide guidnce on bsic opertions nd mintennce (O&M) ctivities involving sbestos contining building mterils t West Virgini University. It is bsed on the Guidnce Mnul: Asbestos Opertions nd Mintennce (O&M) Work Prctices document prepred by Ntionl Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) committee. The guidnce mnul ws developed under n ssistnce greement between NIBS nd the U.S. Environmentl Protection Agency (EPA) nd the Generl Services Administrtion (GSA). The mnul is modified to reflect West Virgini University procedures. All questions nd/or concerns relted to this Mnul or sbestos in West Virgini University (WVU) buildings should be directed to Environmentl Helth nd Sfety t (304) Scope nd Flexibility The ctivities or work prctices described in this mnul re intended to ssist in meeting the current Occuptionl Sfety nd Helth Administrtion (OSHA) nd EPA regultions pplicble to O&M work tht involves sbestos-contining mteril (ACM) or presumed sbestos-contining mteril (PACM) including; therml system insultion (TSI), surfcing, resilient flooring, or other miscellneous sbestoscontining mterils. Work prctices in this mnul re not intended for sbestos btement purposes, but rther controlling disturbnces of sbestos incidentl to repir, mintennce, or clening. These ctivities re, by nture, short in durtion nd smll in scle. The mount of ACM disturbed by ny O&M ctivity should not produce more wste thn will fit in single 60 inch x 60 inch wste bg. This mnul describes work prctices with the step-by-step work procedures tht should be used by n O&M worker. Becuse sbestos in buildings is present under widely vrying circumstnces, flexibility is crucil to the efficient nd cost-effective completion of n O&M ctivity. However, devitions from the O&M Work Prctices West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 4 of22

5 described in this mnul must be pproved by the Asbestos Progrm Mnger (APM). 1.3 Progrm Prmeters All sbestos O&M work will be performed in ccordnce with pplicble regultions by trined personnel. The WVU Asbestos Mngement Pln is guidnce document nd not intended to be used for regultory purposes. 1.4 EPA Green Book The EPA published Mnging Asbestos in Plce ("Green Book '') in July The Green Book explins the objectives nd dministrtive procedures for n O&M progrm. Informtion presented in the Green Book ws referenced nd used where pproprite during the development of WVUs Asbestos Mngement Progrm. 1.5 Sttutory & Regultory Requirements There re number of stte nd federl regultions tht must be complied with during O&M opertions. The mjor regultions tht ffect O&M work re: u OSHA Asbestos Construction Stndrd (CFR ), Generl Industry (CFR ), nd Respirtory Protection (CFR ) Ntionl Emission Stndrds for Hzrdous Air Pollutnts (NESHAP) (Asbestos Subprt M) EPA Worker Protection Rule (WPR) (40 CFR Prt 763) WV Asbestos Abtement Licensing Rule (Title 64, Series 63, 1998) 1.6 EPA Guidnce Documents Mnging Asbestos In Plce ("Green Book") July 1990 Asbestos in Buildings: Simplified Smpling Scheme for Frible Asbestos Mterils ("Pink Book") Guidnce for Controlling Asbestos-Contining Mterils in Buildings ("Purple Book") A Guide to Respirtory Protection for the Asbestos Abtement Industry ("White Book") West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 5 of22

6 2.0 ELEMENTS OF AN O&M PROGRAM 2.1 Definition of Scope The types, loctions, quntities, nd conditions of ACM to be controlled by this progrm hve been determined by inspection nd lbortory nlysis. These re contined in West Virgini University's O&M binders long with dditionl informtion pertining to mterils presumed to contin sbestos. This inventory is ccessible through the Environmentl Helth nd Sfety deprtment. 2.2 Policy nd Orgniztion It is the policy of WVU to protect ll fculty, stff, students, nd visitors from hzrdous conditions, including exposures to sbestos fibers. It is the gol of WVU to eliminte sbestos on its cmpuses. Elimintion of sbestos products will be ccomplished through btement nd removl t the time of ltertion, demolition, renovtion, nd/or repir. Until tht gol is chieved, sbestos will be mnged in plce in ccordnce with the WVU Asbestos Opertions Mnul. The principl objective of WVU' s O&M progrm is to minimize exposure of ll building occupnts to sbestos fibers. To ccomplish this objective, n O&M progrm includes work prctices to (1) mintin ACM in good condition, (2) ensure proper clenup of sbestos fibers previously relesed, (3) prevent further relese of sbestos fibers, nd (4) monitor the condition of ACM. Acting s representtive of the President of WVU, the Assistnt Vice President for Fcilities Mngement is the overll coordintor of the University's progrm. A designted representtive of Environmentl Helth nd Sfety will ct s progrm mnger. 2.3 Progrm Administrtion O&M ctivities shll be trcked by mens of stndrdized "Notifiction Forms" initited by West Virgini University O&M personnel. West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 6 of22

7 2.4 Documenttion of Regultory Complince nd Progrm Effectiveness Copies of ll "Asbestos Abtement Notifiction Forms" shll be received by the Asbestos Progrm Mnger, or designee, s well s personnel trining certifictes, ir testing results, etc. nd retined on file fter djustments re mde to West Virgini University's computerized ACM inventory nd other dtbses in mnner tht stisfies regultory requirements. 2.5 Restricted Ares & Controlled Systems Restricted Ares Where dmged ACM exists in n re to which ccess cn be controlled, disturbnce of the ACM cn be voided by restricting this ccess. The re is designted s "Restricted." Only individuls with the proper trining nd protective equipment re llowed ccess into the "Restricted Are". Exmples of restricted res include: spces bove suspended ceilings where there is dmged sbestos-contining fireproofing or pipe insultion, nd mechnicl res with dmged ACM Controlled Systems Building systems tht contin sbestos re designted s controlled systems. Exmples include : pipe insultion, equipment insultion on boilers, breechings, tnks, converters nd relted equipment tht hs been identified s contining sbestos. Contct with "Controlled System" should be llowed only for individuls with the proper trining. Ifthe ACM is intct, nonfrible, encpsulted, or enclosed, this trining cn be s simple s wreness trining tht informs workers bout the loctions of the ACM, nd tht instructs them to void disturbing it, nd to report ny dmged ACM they observe. Work tht involves the disturbnce or potentil disturbnce of ACM requires specific work prctices (such s those in this mnul) pplied by individuls with dequte trining. The OSHA construction stndrd, which governs most O&M mintennce ctivities, requires tht, where fesible, lbels be ffixed to notify employees bout ACM or PACM (29 CFR (k)(8)(vii)), but this prctice hs been found infesible for most controlled substnces t West Virgini University. A sign should be posted t the entrnce to ll mechnicl rooms tht contin controlled systems. The West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 7 of22

8 sign should identify the mterils present, their loction, nd pproprite work prctices to ensure tht the mteril will not be disturbed. This sort of signge is required by the OSHA construction stndrd (29 CFR (k)(6)). 2.6 Trining Environmentl Helth nd Sfety shll inugurte nd mintin trining progrm designed to instruct pproprite employees in the hndling nd control of sbestos. Specific instructions with respect to hzrds unique to this work shll be given to ll pproprite personnel prior to being ssigned to ny work involving sbestos. Such trining shll be documented to certify tht the employee hs stisfctorily completed the trining progrm. Deprtments shll mintin documenttion of sbestos trining nd trining renewls conducted for employees. This documenttion (which includes type of trining, dte, triner, nd employee) shll be submitted to Humn Resources nd Environmentl Helth nd Sfety upon successful completion of the trining progrm. Deprtments shll ssure tht employees do not work with sbestos unless they hve been ppropritely trined or hve received necessry renewl trining s described herein. Ech sbestos trining progrm shll include the following informtion: 1::1 The nture of ll helth hzrds directly ttributble to sbestos exposure including crcinogenic hzrds; 1::1 The incresed risk of lung cncer ssocited with smoking cigrettes nd sbestos exposure; n The specific nture of the opertions nd specific informtion to id the employee in recognizing when nd where sbestos exposure my result; The purpose for nd description of the exposure monitoring progrm; 1::1 The necessry protective steps to prevent exposure, including engineering controls nd sfe work prctices; Where the employee is required to wer respirtor, the purpose for, proper use nd limittion of the respirtory devices; West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 8 of22

9 Where protective clothing is required, the purpose for, proper use nd limittions of protective clothing; The purpose for nd ppliction of housekeeping nd personl hygiene prctices nd procedures to prevent sbestos exposure to others; The purpose for, significnce of nd fmiliriztion with emergency procedures ; Review of the Asbestos Mngement Progrm Annul refresher sfety trining is required for ll workers who re ssigned duties which my require them to come into contct with sbestos contining mteril Levels of Trining Level l Trining is to be offered to ll employees who work in res determined by WVU Environmentl Helth nd Sfety to contin sbestos contining building mterils. It is designed to provide wreness trining nd generl orienttion to the subject of sbestos in buildings. Trining should focus on the uses nd pplictions of sbestos mteril in buildings, the loctions of such mterils, nd wht steps employees cn tke to minimize their exposure to sbestos, nd to reduce their risk of incurring sbestos relted diseses Level II Trining is trgeted t those personnel who perform work in which there is significnt potentil for exposure to sbestos. This group would include mintennce nd other employees who perform services tht my bring them in contct with sbestos contining mterils. This trining should be t minimum EPA certified worker level. tt These employees would require, in ddition to Level 1 trining, instruction in the prcticl spects of performing mintennce or repir on sbestos contining mterils. 1:1 Service personnel should be tught prcticl precutions to be followed in removing suspended ceiling pnels, instlling light or plumbing fixtures, repiring ir hndling systems or West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 9 of22

Lbortories providing such service must lso be licensed by the Stte of WV Deprtment of Helth. 2.7 Notices Notice to Students, Fculty, Administrtors, nd Support Stff In its cpcity s property owners nd mngers of the Stte's buildings, WVU t times hs need to communicte importnt mtters concerning helth nd sfety. In tht regrd, mny of the Stte's public buildings t WVU were constructed t time when, s stndrd construction prctice, sbestos contining products were used. WVU hs dopted n Asbestos Mngement Progrm. Under tht Progrm, WVU hs surveyed buildings to identify the type nd loction of sbestos contining products. WVU hs developed nd implemented specil opertions nd mintennce progrms to void unnecessry disturbnce or dmge to the sbestos contining products found in the buildings. West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 12 of 22

13 According to the surveys conducted to dte, the primry sbestos contining products in WVU buildings include fireproofing which hs been spryed onto the structurl steel bems nd columns of few buildings on cmpus. In most res of the buildings, the steel bems nd columns re ccessible only by removl of ceiling pnels. Other sbestos contining products in the buildings include cousticl plster nd insultion on certin mechnicl equipment nd vinyl sbestos floor tile, mong others. These products re not generlly ccessible to occupnts or visitors to the building. Environmentl experts retined by the Stte of West Virgini hve dvised WVU tht it is importnt to void unnecessry disturbnce or dmge to these sbestos-contining products, becuse such disturbnce or dmge could result in relese of sbestos fibers into the ir. According to our experts, the helth risks ssocited with sbestos re relted to irborne sbestos fibers which cn be inhled. When inhled, sbestos fibers cn cuse certin diseses, including lung cncer. Furthermore, helth risks re considerbly enhnced for smokers who re lso exposed to sbestos fibers. WVU hs estblished specil mintennce progrms in its buildings to del with sbestos contining mterils. An integrl prt of the WVU Asbestos Mngement Progrm includes the continued monitoring, inspection, nd mintennce of ll res of the buildings which hve sbestos contining products. Signs shll be posted in some of the buildings indicting the loctions of sbestos contining mterils tht re ccessible nd cpble of being disturbed or dmged. Questions relting to sbestos in buildings should be referred to Environmentl Helth nd Sfety t (304) In order to ensure complince with the WVU Asbestos Mngement Progrm, building occupnts nd visitors should not ttempt ny ccess to res where the sbestos contining products re locted without first contcting Environmentl Helth nd Sfety or Fcilities for tht prticulr building. In prticulr, ny work tht my involve disturbnce of sbestos contining mterils such s removing ceiling tiles; telephone repir work nd/or computer cble instlltion; chnging ceiling light fixtures; or going bove the ceiling must not be performed without prior consulttion with Environmentl Helth nd Sfety nd Services. Inddition, ny incidents involving significnt chnges in the condition of the sbestos contining products, including wter leks, should be reported immeditely to Fcilities & Services for tht building. Cre should be tken not to scrpe, scrtch, or otherwise disturb those sbestos contining mterils. Your coopertion is necessry for the successful implementtion of this progrm. Fculty nd dministrtors should post this notice on bulletin bords where it cn be red by employees nd others who re working in or visiting your office. West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 13 of 22

14 Your coopertion in this effort is pprecited. With your ssistnce, WVU cn continue to successfully ddress the sfety of ll occupnts nd visitors to the Stte's buildings t WVU. Sincerely, Kthy Powell Director, Environmentl Helth nd Sfety Notice to Contrctors, nd Equipment Instlltion nd Mintennce Personnel Concerning Asbestos Contining Products From the Stte of West Virgini Bsed on the recommendtions from experts retined by the Stte of West Virgini, specil mintennce policies nd procedures re implemented in the Stte of West Virgini's public buildings to ensure tht the sbestos contining products in the buildings re not unnecessrily disturbed or dmged. The WVU Asbestos Mngement Progrm generlly involves: Use of specil procedures for btement, mintennce, repir or clening ctivities involving potentil disturbnces of sbestos contining products in the Stte's public buildings. Use of specific responses if sbestos contining products re disturbed. 1:1 The trining of personnel who will be responsible for the btement, mintennce, repir or clening ctivities involving ccess to sbestos contining products. 1:1 The use of specil equipment in certin circumstnces to protect personnel from excessive exposure to sbestos fibers, nd medicl surveillnce progrm for personnel who my be required to work with sbestos contining mterils. According to survey conducted in the Stte's Public Buildings, the sbestos contining products in the buildings which my relese sbestos fibers re spry-on fireproofing insultion locted on the structurl steel bems nd columns in the building, cousticl plsters spryed on ceilings, stem pipe insultion, insultion on certin mechnicl equipment nd vinyl sbestos floor tile, mong others. As prt of WVU's Asbestos Mngement Progrm, West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 14 of 22

15 signs should be posted in buildings indicting the loctions of sbestos contining mterils tht re cpble of being disturbed or dmged during btement, mintennce, repir or clening by the contrctor. The contrctor should notify the designted Asbestos Mintennce Supervisor for the building who hs been given the responsibility of overseeing the Asbestos Mngement Progrm for tht prticulr building, in which btement, mintennce, repir or clening by the contrctor is being conducted. Under WVU' s Asbestos Mngement Progrm, contrctors nd other outside personnel re required to comply with the following rules: Any btement, mintennce, renovtion, or clening ctivity which s the potentil of disturbing sbestos contining products must be pproved by Environmentl Helth nd Sfety, nd performed by personnel who re currently licensed by the Stte of West Virgini to perform such work. Any incidents involving dmge to, or significnt chnges in the condition of sbestos contining products re to be reported immeditely to Environmentl Helth nd Sfety, the designted Asbestos Mintennce Supervisor for the building nd/or the pproprite Plnning, Design nd Construction representtive. Asbestos contining mteril should be hndled only by licensed personnel, ccording to pproved procedures. 1:1 Ifsbestos contining mteril hs been dmged or disturbed, do not try to sweep it up or otherwise disturb it. Disturbing the mteril in this fshion my hve the effect of further spreding the sbestos fibers nd/or mking them irborne. The disturbed sbestos contining mteril should be hndled only by licensed personnel, ccording to pproved procedures. The re should be secured to prevent further potentil contmintion. The WVU Asbestos Opertions Mnul hs been prepred to provide more detiled guidnce for personnel nd outside contrctors who will be working in res where the sbestos contining products re ccessible. Ifyou re going to be involved in work where sbestos contining products my be disturbed, nd you hve not been provided with guidnce from the Mnul, contct Environmentl Helth nd Sfety, the building's Asbestos Mintennce Supervisor, or Plnning, Design, nd Construction representtive so tht pproprite pproved guidnce cn be obtined prior to beginning ny work.

16 Ifyou hve ny questions regrding this notice, or bout ny problem tht my rise concerning this issue, plese contct Environmentl Helth nd Sfety t (304) Sincerely, Roger L. Pugh Director, Environmentl Helth nd Sfety 2.8 Audit nd Review The entire progrm shll be evluted nnully by the Asbestos Progrm Mnger with regrd to: success of work procedures, effectiveness of dministrtive controls, dequcy of documenttion, complince with current regultions, level of personnel trining, nd equipment condition. 3.0 O&M WORK PRACTICES 3.1 Generl The work prctices in this mnul re designed to reduce or contin mteril, dust, or fiber relese resulting from work performed on or ner sbestos-contining mterils (ACM). The work prctices re lso intended to minimize the extent nd impct of ny releses tht do occur. Summries of ech work prctice nd exmples of typicl situtions tht might be encountered re included to ssist in the selection of pproprite work prctices levels. The work prctices in the mnul ddress most commonly encountered opertions nd mintennce tsks involving ACM. This mnul is not exhustive nd does not document or estblish defined procedure for every possible sitution. The mnul is formtted to present n rry of ctul conditions tht might be encountered. It estblishes logicl pth to be followed in selecting the most pproprite work prctices(s) for given sitution. O&M workers might lso wish to offer suggestions for modifictions to specific work prctices. Any chnges to the work prctices shll be reviewed nd pproved by the Asbestos Progrm Mnger. Personnel who meet the OSHA-specified requirements to be "competent persons" should review informtion to determine if building mteril tht is to be worked on contins sbestos. Ifthe mteril hs not been smpled, it should either be smpled nd nlyzed in ccordnce with the EPA Pink nd/or Purple Books, or be presumed to contin sbestos (PACM) nd treted ccordingly. The OSHA regultion (29 CFR West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 16 of 22

17 ) requires tht building or fcility owner determine the loction of ACM nd PACM before ny work begins. 3.2 O&M Progrm Assumptions This O&M Work Prctices Mnul ssumes tht ll of the elements listed below re considered nd tht pplicble elements re estblished. Consult the Asbestos Progrm Mnger for more detiled informtion. Asbestos Progrm Mnger ppointment nd trining Building inspection ssessment Copies of pplicble regultions nd guidnce documents Occupnt notifiction/communiction progrm O&M worker, supervisor, nd competent person ssignments nd trining progrm Work control/inspection/permit system Periodic surveillnce progrm Record keeping progrm Hzrd communiction progrm 1:1 Worker protection progrm (personl protective equipment) Respirtory protection progrm t Medicl surveillnce progrm Asbestos fiber relese episode response progrm Air monitoring progrm Wste disposl progrm Historicl ir monitoring dt Sfety progrms for other hzrds All O&M relted progrms shll be reviewed periodiclly nd revised if necessry. Regultory nd guidnce documents shll lso be reviewed periodiclly to ensure they re current. 3.3 Orgniztion of Work Prctices The O&M work prctices in this guide re grouped ccording to the type of ACM tht will be ffected by the work. ACM is clssified in this mnul ccording to the three (3) ctegories used by the EPA. This clssifiction system hs been widely used in the sbestos industry since the publiction of the Asbestos Hzrd Emergency Response Act Rules (AHERA) in These ctegories re: n Surfcing Mterils -mterils spryed or troweled onto building surfces, such s cousticl mterils or fireproofing. Drywll systems re not considered Surfcing Mterils. West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 17 of 22

18 u u Therml Systems Insultion (TSI) -pipe, boiler, tnk, duct nd other insultion pplied to components to reduce het loss, het gin or condenstion. Miscellneous Mterils - mterils such s floor tile, ceiling tile, roofing, cement sbestos products, felt, woven sbestos products, nd other mterils tht re not included in the ctegories bove. The work prctices in this mnul re generlly designed to ddress one mteril t time. Ifmore thn one type of mteril is involved, work prctices should be selected nd used in the order in which the mterils will be encountered during the work. If two (2) or more mterils must be ddressed t one time, the O&M designer should develop combined Work Prctice to ddress the prticulr work sitution. When developing combined work prctice, the O&M designer should consider the following: u The work re should be prepred in ccordnce with the most precutionry work prctice being used. u Once the work re is prepred nd pre-work ctivities re complete, the detiled work prctices should be performed in the order in which mterils re encountered. 1:2 Clen up nd ter down procedures should lso follow the most precutionry work prctice being used. When work is to be performed, the finl work prctice decisions should be given to workers. Repetition of certin steps in different work prctices is intentionl in order to provide consistent nd complete informtion to worker for given work prctice. 4.0 DESIGN OF O&M WORK PRACTICES The design of the O&M work prctices tkes the gols of the progrm into considertion. 4.1 Environmentl And Worker Exposure Gols The estblished personl exposure limit to irborne sbestos levels is equivlent to 0.01 fibers per cubic centimeter of ir by PCM (EPA Purple Book). A workers' exposure my not exceed the OSHA PEL or Excursion Limit during execution of O&M work prctices (0.1 flee by PCM s n 8-hour time-weighted verge (TWA), nd 1.0 flee s 30-minute excursion limit). 4.2 Selecting Work Prctices Work prctices from this mnul tht re closest to conditions in the loction where the work will be performed shll be selected. Ifsitutions exist tht re not covered West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 18 of 22

19 by this mnul, the O&M designer should develop modified work prctices bsed on the guidelines in this mnul nd other sources. The following fctors should be considered when modifying work prctice for use in specific loction: Fiber relese potentil of mteril or O&M ctivity ll Condition nd fribility of ACM Exposure nd ir monitoring dt Trining, skill nd experience of workers 1:1 Quntity of ACM to be disturbed Type nd percentge of sbestos Loction nd use of ACM Exposure potentil for occupnts nd other personnel Stte nd locl regultions ll O&M nd other mngement policies t:1 HVAC nd ventiltion system configurtions Presence of on-site supervision Asbestos-contining dust nd debris The work prctices re generlly designed for working with or round smll mounts of sbestos s required to perform O&M tsks. They re generlly limited to ctivities tht re within the OSHA Clss III limittion, i.e., the ACM to be disturbed fits in one glovebg or disposl bg. This is firly lrge mount of mteril, nd definitive quntities of ACM below this level hve not been specified in the work prctice level exmples. For Clss II work, such s flooring or roofing opertions, the work prctices in the mnul re lso limited to smll quntity of mteril. 4.3 Exposure Monitoring The only wy work prctice cn be vlidted is to perform the procedure nd simultneously monitor irborne levels during the work. Under the OSHA stndrds, personl monitoring is required to determine worker protection requirements nd the need for work re isoltion. However, Environmentl Helth nd Sfety (EH&S) policy prohibits the use of ir monitoring s bsis for determine minimum worker protection nd enclosure requirements. In ddition, re monitoring my be necessry to demonstrte tht the remining building environment is not exposed to elevted sbestos levels. Ifno disturbnce of ACM will occur, monitoring requirements my be miniml or non-existnt. Meningful exposure monitoring requires sufficiently long smple durtions. O&M procedures re smll in scle nd short in durtion, requiring mny procedures be repeted number of times to enble the collection of smple with sufficient sensitivity. OSHA requires employers to determine initilly the level of irborne fibers to which n employee will be exposed through n "initil exposure ssessment." A "negtive West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 19 of 22

20 exposure ssessment" cn be mde by use of objective dt, historicl dt from pst jobs, or by initil exposure monitoring. (OSHA trets intct removl of resilient flooring differently). OSHA then requires periodic monitoring of construction ctivities including O&M unless negtive exposure ssessment is mde, supplied ir respirtors re used, or sttisticlly relible mesurements indicte tht the PEL is not going to be exceeded. Monitoring must be resumed (unless supplied ir respirtors re used) if there is chnge in workers, the ctivity, or equipment use occurs, which might results in exposures bove the permissible exposure limits (PELs). As noted previously, ir-monitoring dt shll not be used s bsis for the determintion of worker protection or s bsis to eliminte the need for negtive pressure enclosures, in ccordnce with EH&S policy. 4.4 Initil Exposure Monitoring The monitoring specified for n initil exposure ssessment is discussed in prgrph (f)(2) of the OSHA construction stndrd 29 CFR : "(I) Ech employer who hs workplce or work opertion covered by this stndrd shll insure tht "competent person" conducts n exposure ssessment immeditely before or t the initition of the opertion to scertin expected exposures during tht opertion or workplce." 4.5 Negtive Exposure Assessment (NEA) The OSHA construction stndrd sets forth the criteri tht must be met to demonstrte tht worker exposures will be below the PEL in 29 CFR (f)(2)(iii). The dt must show tht exposures re expected to be below the PEL nd EL. This evlution usully occurs during the testing nd development phse of n O&M work prctice. The EPA worker protection rule nd OSHA govern the employer of the workers performing the O&M work. This mens tht where West Virgini University employees re performing work on ACM, the supervisor of those employees is responsible for ensuring tht the negtive exposure ssessment is conducted. If O&M work tht disturbs ACM is performed by contrctor rther thn by West Virgini University personnel, then West Virgini University must be ssured tht the contrctor is complying with OSHA. WVU Project mngers re responsible for ssuring tht contrctors comply with OSHA nd EPA regultions. 4.6 Worker Protection EHS hs specified ir smpling dt shll not be used s bsis for determining when personl protective equipment shll be used. Any ctivity where there is potentil for disturbnce of sbestos contining mteril shll require the use of pproved West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 20 of 22

Ech work prctice includes summry of the work prctice nd lists exmples of typicl situtions, generl procedures, nd certin bsic informtion bout the prctices. A recommended or required minimum number of workers is lso listed for ech work prctice. 5.2 Using Work Prctices The selection of work prctices to be used shll be mde by supervisor who is "competent person" s defined by OSHA. The process of using work prctices for given sitution cn be summrized s follows: A competent personl shll evlute the work to be performed bsed on existing survey/ssessment dt, nd dt on pst O&M ctivities (if vilble). When reviewing dt the following should be determined: 1::J Whether the job requested is ctully n sbestos O&M ctivity The ctegory(ies) of ACM tht might be encountered during the work The pproprite work prctice(s) to ddress the sitution Personl Protective equipment for the work Copies of required informtion long with the pproprite work prctices should be provided to the O&M worker(s). Note tht NESHAP requirements pply to building if the combined dditive mount of Regulted Asbestos Contining Mteril (RACM) tht will be removed or stripped in repetitive ctivities exceeds the quntities specified in NESHAP (260 liner, 160 squre, or 35 cubic feet of ACM). Repetitive tsks might increse exposure levels such tht more stringent OSHA worker protection nd engineering control requirements re triggered. Cution should be used to insure tht ech of the repeted O&M ctivities is discrete O&M ctivity. O&M work procedures re bsed on disturbing smll mount of mteril over short period of time. Cre must be tken to void violting the intent by llowing contiguous ctivities tht dd up to lrger scle procedure nd potentil ccumultion of contmintion. If number of O&M ctivities need to occur t one time in one loction, it might be preferble to tret the work s lrger scle, non O&M ctivity. The Asbestos Progrm Mnger cn set limits pproprite for fcility nd O&M progrm tht re bsed on quntities of ACM to be potentilly disturbed in single nd multiple O&M ctivities. Exposure monitoring procedures West Virgini University Asbestos Mngement Progrm Best Prctice Mnul 21 of 22

22 nd methods for repetitive ctivities might need to be more stringent thn for single ctivities. ll An initil exposure ssessment must be mde during design of the work prctices, nd OSHA requires tht personl ir monitoring (periodic monitoring) be performed for work prctices unless employee exposures, s indicted by sttisticlly relible mesurement, re below the OSHA permissible exposure limits. OSHA requires tht employees be informed in writing of the results of exposure monitoring either individully or by posting the dt in centrl loction tht is ccessible to ffected employees. Dt generted during this periodic monitoring cn be used by the Asbestos Progrm Mnger during future development of work prctices. O&M ctivity dt shll be kept in strict ccordnce with the requirements of the OSHA construction stndrds (29 CFR (n) nd ). The work prctice user is responsible for proving complince with ll pplicble federl, stte nd locl regultions.

The finl lgging is usully continuous so tht there re no visible joints, except for expnsion joints. Repir of insultion nd lgging on boilers, ducts nd flues requires skill nd understnding of insulting techniques. It is preferble to trin skilled insultors in Asbestos O&M procedures rther thn to expect sbestos workers to perform insulting nd lgging work. The quick fix of plug of insulting mteril with ptch of wettble lgging cloth over hole in boiler or flue insultion is highly likely to fil. Mny lgging repirs mde by sbestos O&M trined workers hve filed fter short period oftime when the repir crcked loose or fell out due to expnsion nd contrction of the insultion. In mny instnces the surfce temperture of the insultion is sufficiently high to restrict use of ny cloth mterils. Notes for Pipe Insultion The insultion system on piping usully consists of insultion tht is soft nd esily dmged, covered by lgging tht protects the insultion. Lggings on piping re typiclly mde from pper, cloth, cement or cloth impregnted with cement. The lgging my or my not contin sbestos.

Ifny disturbnce of ACM insultion is nticipted (e.g., removl, djustment, cutting, tering, repositioning), n lterntive work prctice with more protective engineering controls should be used. Instlltion of pipe lgging is plumbing skill not n btement skill. Instlltion or repir of pipe insultion mterils requires specil skills, especilly cold surfces. Prticulr cre is needed to restore vpor brriers nd protect ginst condenstion nd moisture/frost migrtion. Workers instlling lgging mteril s n sbestos control ctivity should be trined by n experienced plumber or insultor in proper lgging instlltion. Mny lgging repirs mde by trined sbestos btement workers hve filed fter short period of time due to dmge cused by expnsion nd contrction of the pipe insultion.

117 Appendix C Lockdown/Encpsultion Procedures Lockdown encpsulnts used during sbestos removl opertions should be tested per 1978 Bttelle/EPA report "Tests for the Evlution of Encpsulnts for Frible Asbestos Contining Mterils". Encpsulnts should be wter resistnt fter curing nd be Clss "A"fire-rted per ASTM 84-8 la "Stndrd Method for Surfce Burning Chrcteristics of Building Mterils". Encpsulnts must be comptible with ny mterils tht will be instlled over the encpsulnt. Note tht mny lockdown encpsulnts will ct s n dhesive nd could be objectionble on some surfces when dry. Cre should be tken to void getting encpsulnt on or in HVAC units, HEPA vcuums, nd negtive pressure mchines. The lockdown encpsulnt is typiclly pplied for O&M work using n irless grden spryer. It should be pplied in ccordnce with the mnufcturer 's recommendtions in two light cots spryed from opposite directions to sel ll portion s of surfces including ny exposed edges of remining ACM. DO NOT APPLY LOCKDOWN ENCAPSULANT ON FIREPROOFING OR TO STEEL THAT IS GOING TO BE FIREPROOFED, WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL FROM THE SUPERVISOR. The use of spry fireproofing is bsed on full-scle fire endurnce tests of fireproofed steel. Anything tht differs from the tested ssembly voids the test, nd could result in fireproofing filure. Fireproofing is non-combustible insultor of steel. Coting it or sturting it with n encpsulnt could render it combustible nd could reduce its insulting properties. This could cuse the fireproofing to fil nd s such, voids the fire rting. The introduction of n encpsulnt between the fireproofing nd the steel could cuse the bond of the fireproofing to the steel to weken cusing the fireproofing to fll off, or the encpsulnt could be softened nd llow the fireproofing to fll off during fire. Unless the encpsulnt hs been tested nd pproved for use by the mnufcturer of the fireproofing used, its use will void the fire rting of the fireproofing mteril.

The use of HEPA vcuum t the point of disturbnce will collect these irborne fibers. The negtive pressure inside properly instlled enclosure helps drw irborne fibers wy from the plenum. Asbestos is lso relesed into the ir t the floor line when debris lnds on the floor. Prompt clen up will prevent dditionl relese from the ACM being wlked on. The enclosure helps contin these fibers, nd the HEPA vcuum used to form negtive pressure will help collect them.

163 contrctors who re ccustomed to working on environments with elevted sbestos levels. c Routinely, the instlltion of computer nd telephone cbles is done without removing enough ceiling tile. Consequently, the cble is drgged long distnces on top of the ceiling, rttling the ceiling. This vibrtion shkes the ceiling's hnging system, nd my vibrte ACM fireproofing, dmged ACM, or ACM debris overhed. A worker cn shke this mteril loose, without ever touching the mteril, simply by cusing the ceiling to vibrte. The vibrtions cn cuse relese of irborne sbestos fibers. c c Ifthere is ny visible ACM debris on top of the ceiling tiles or if fllout of debris or dust cnnot dequtely be controlled, then n enclosure is required to protect the building environment. Airborne sbestos is relesed t the ceiling line when debris is disturbed by lifting tile. The use of HEPA vcuum t the point of disturbnce will collect these irborne fibers. The negtive pressure inside properly instlled enclosure helps drw irborne fibers wy from the plenum. Asbestos is lso relesed into the ir t the floor line when debris lnds on the floor. Prompt clen up will prevent dditionl relese from the ACM being wlked on. The enclosure helps contin these fibers, nd the HEPA vcuum used to form negtive pressure will help collect them. Notes **Negtive pressure continments shll be constructed for this procedure, unless, the erection or instlltion of continment is likely to cuse more disturbnce to the ACM which my result in sbestos fiber relese nd unnecessry exposure to the worker. Ifn enclosure cnnot be instlled, contct the sbestos progrm mnger for lterntive work procedures.
