Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

We protect students and faculty from asbestos exposure in schools. We make sure that K-12 public and private, nonprofit schools are inspected for asbestos and have an asbestos management plan to prevent asbestos disturbance.  

To ensure schools are compliant, we also inspect schools and evaluate complaints.   

In 1989, we joined a collaborative agreement with the EPA to promote AHERA compliance in Texas.
