Information provided by UO Safety and Risk Services:

Asbestos abatement is completed with a controlled environment. Unaffected surfaces are covered with thick plastic sheeting and thoroughly sealed, any penetrations are sealed, and the work area entry is protected by a two flap air lock. Air is constantly removed from the work area through use of a machine called an air filtration unit (AFU). This machine draws air from the work area, forces it through a series of filters, and then exhausts it to the exterior of the building. The final filter is HEPA, which removes 99.97% of particulate measuring .3 microns and smaller. The work area is under negative pressure, meaning that air can’t escape except through our AFU.

You may notice plastic sheeting walls with asbestos signage on them. These are to notify you of a potential hazard inside of the enclosure and are required by OSHA and LRAPA regulations. There also will be a long plastic exhaust duct. This duct carries the filtered exhaust air out of the containment and exhausts it to the building exterior. All of these controls are designed and proven to keep the potential hazard inside of the containment and away from you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Environmental Health & Safety at 6-3192.

Please contact me or Adam Jones with any questions.
