Asbestos Management Plan for Tufts University by Woodard and Curran
Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) have been used widely in the construction industry. Although use of ACM in buildings is now prohibited, and Tufts University has removed significant quantities of ACM from its campus, ACM may still be present in older building systems. If these remaining ACM are maintained in good condition and are unlikely to be disturbed such that fibers may become airborne, exposure and health risks are negligible. Accordingly, the purpose of this Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) is to describe a program for recognizing, controlling and mitigating potential asbestos hazards at the university campus. The program is consistent with and describes requirements for the management of ACM or Presumed Asbestos Containing Materials (PACM) under federal and state regulatory guidelines.
