About Asbestos Abatement
Asbestos is a carcinogen when ingested though it is unknown if there are any safe levels of asbestos in a material.
Asbestos Abatement is the process or procedures to remove or make safe the Asbestos materials.
Asbestos-Containing Material: Both friable asbestos containing material or Class I nonfriable asbestos-containing material. ASBESTOS-CONTAINING WASTE MATERIAL (ACWM) is any waste that contains commercial asbestos and that is generated by a source subject to the provisions of this rule. ACWM includes, but is not limited to, ACM which is friable, has become friable, or has a high probability of becoming friable, or has been subjected to sanding, grinding, cutting, or abrading, and the waste generated from its disturbance, such as asbestos waste from control devices, particulate asbestos material, asbestos slurries, bags or containers that previously contained asbestos, used asbestos contaminated plastic sheeting and clothing, and clean-up equipment waste, such as cloth rags or mop heads.
Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA): The act which legislates asbestos-related requirements for schools (40 CFR 763, Subpart E).
The process of Asbestos Abatement, if done incorrectly, can lead to serious injury and harm. This is why both the State of California & we at ALM Environmental, set in place strict procedures and guidelines to ensure the safety of both ourselves and the people around us.
