In the past, asbestos and other hazardous materials were used during the construction of schools, office buildings, churches, hospitals, and other structures. Asbestos is found in surfacing treatments, pipe insulation, and a wide variety of other building components. As these materials age, they deteriorate, and if not managed properly by experienced professionals, may present health risks to building occupants and maintenance workers.

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was used in building and construction materials in the early 20th century because of its strength and heat-resistant properties. Asbestos fibers can be inhaled and cause a host of health problems if they are disturbed during repair, remodeling or demolition activities. Because of these dangers the 1986 Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all public and non-profit local education agencies to inspect their schools for asbestos-containing materials and prepare management plans to prevent or reduce asbestos hazards.
Our experts will take care of the AHERA inspection requirements, create the necessary management plans for school facilities, and help with the annual notification requirement.
