ASBESTOS AHERA REINSPECTION AND MANAGEMENT PLAN
    RAMM Environmental Services, Inc. will provide the personnel, equipment and materials necessary to complete the Scope of Work detailed in Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, enacted by the United States Congress.

             

    RAMM personnel will visually inspect and record the condition of all known or assumed asbestos-containing building material (A.C.B.M.) in all facilities in accordance with 40 CFR Part 763.92(b) of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).

             

    RAMM personnel will record any changes in the condition of known or assumed ACM previously identified in the most recent inspections.

             

    If bulk sampling is required, RAMM will provide the laboratory analysis promptly and in accordance with the proposed completion date.  All bulk samples collected will be examined first for homogeneity and preliminary fiber identification at low magnification.  Positive identification of suspect asbestos fibers will be made by analysis of sub samples with the Polarized Light Microscopy (P.L.M.).

             

    Sample will be analyzed by an American industrial Hygiene Association (A.I.H.A.) accredited laboratory using the E.P.A. interim method for the determination of asbestos in bulk samples.  The types of fibers will be determined by their optical characteristics and a percentage range, by volume of asbestos, contained in the sample will be quantified.

             

    RAMM personnel will provide and attach warning labels throughout all areas of each facility, as needed, immediately adjacent to any friable or non-friable, confirmed or assumed ACM throughout all routine maintenance areas at each of the facilities.  The labels will be prominently displayed in readily visible locations and will conform to the requirements of 40 CFR Part

    763.95 (a), (b), and (c).
