Asbestos Management

Guidelines for managing asbestos in University of West Florida facilities in accordance with applicable rule and regulations.


All asbestos containing facilities are subject to monitoring and periodic inspections until all asbestos containing materials have been removed, and the removal and required records are documented. A current approved asbestos survey for each building and a campus-wide Asbestos Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Plan must be maintained, in accordance with state and federal regulations. In-place management, consistent with the O&M Plan, is the primary method of managing asbestos containing materials. Removal or other forms of response actions shall be required in advance of renovation/remodeling or demolition activities and in specific instances where O&M is deemed
inappropriate. The scope of asbestos removal work shall include, to the extent reason able, all friable and non-friable asbestos-containing materials within the area that is to be isolated during the removal process.
