About Us - Asbestos Program


The Asbestos Program provides direct services to prevent occupational and environmental diseases through identification, evaluation, and control of asbestos health hazards. Asbestos is present in over half of our public buildings, and is of particular concern when it is present in schools. The Asbestos Program has regional inspectors available to monitor asbestos removal in buildings, and to respond to community concerns to ensure that public exposure is minimized.
