This curriculum was developed to provide guidance and assistance for those individuals who will conduct a building inspection for the presence of asbestos-containing materials. The procedures and practices detailed in the curriculum incorporated recent technology. The students are reminded that as technology evolves, so do the methods for conducting building inspections. Therefore, we emphasize the need for the reader to obtain the most up-to-date information available.


 This U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), provides detailed information on how to conduct comprehensive building inspections in compliance with AHERA, yet also go beyond the basic regulatory framework to include inspection practices which can be adopted and adapted for many situations. Hence provisions of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s worker protection regulations as well as EPA’s Asbestos School Hazard Abatement Reauthorization Act (ASHARA) and the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) are included.
