Asbestos Management Program

Policy Statement                                                               

It is the policy of Adelphi University to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for employees, faculty, students, contractors and visitors. In recognition of the potential health problems associated with asbestos, and due to the minerals’ widespread use in buildings constructed prior to 1980, the University is committed to its Asbestos Management Program. The objectives of the program include identification of asbestos containing materials (ACM), hazard communication, training, maintenance, and repair or removal of ACM in University facilities. The program ensures that employees and others will not be exposed to significant levels of asbestos fibers, and that asbestos will be handled in full compliance with all applicable regulations.
