Asbestos Management Program
Caltech has a number of procedures in place for identifying and managing asbestos-containing building materials. These procedures have been developed to ensure that no one is exposed to an airborne concentration of asbestos fibers exceeding specified standards during the course of their work at the Institute.
The Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) Office coordinates with Facilities Design and Construction, Facilities Management, and Housing to ensure that Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) are properly identified and managed prior to any planned work likely to disturb them.
