Asbestos Annual Notification
In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). One requirement of AHERA is to notify in writing parent, teacher, and employee organizations of the availability of the asbestos Management Plan at each facility. This notification provides information of Colorado Early College’s (CEC) compliance to AHERA.
The law requires all schools, kindergarten through twelfth grade, to be inspected for Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM). The law further required the development of a Management Plan outlining the organization’s intent on controlling and managing any ACBM in CEC facilities.
The Management Plan includes an operations and maintenance program developed for CEC schools. This program is the primary foundation by which the organization will control exposure to any asbestos-containing materials through a systematic schedule of monitoring, employee training, recordkeeping and periodic reinspections. Building Maintenance and Custodial Services staff receive asbestos awareness training to qualify them to conduct their routine activities around asbestos.
CEC has maintained strict compliance with AHERA and will continue to do so. Abatement of ACBM in will continue on an as needed basis contingent of building remodeling, retrofitting, and maintenance of disturbed ACBM. Removal projects are designed and put out to bid by a qualified contractor.
Copies of individual building Management Plans will be available for review at each school site.
