Pages: Asbestos Awareness and Management Program

The purpose of this program is to provide guidelines for awareness and management of asbestos in University facilities.

Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM) has been identified in a number of buildings at Florida State University (FSU). FSU manages the ACM in place, as recommended by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), until it is removed due to renovation or demolition. This asbestos awareness and management program provides guidance to manage ACM safely, and includes:

  • An inventory of known asbestos-containing materials
  • Notification of building occupants
  • Coordination of asbestos abatement activities
  • Periodic surveillance of ACM
  • Training of maintenance and custodial staff and any other employee required to work with or near ACM
