The intent of this paper is to provide the information necessary to develop and implement an acceptable asbestos removal plan. The information is taken from current (September 1980) federal and state regulations and recommendations. The information describing asbestos removal operations is organized chronologically to simplify using this document as a guide in a step-by-step program for asbestos removal or encapsulation. Topics discussed include necessary notifications, permits, protective clothing and equipment, employee training, respirators, environmental air monitoring, medical examinations, record keeping, documentation, building occupancy, pre-renovation meetings, work area preparation, personnel decontamination, methods of asbestos stripping, and asbestos disposal. The appendices contain a letter from the state of New Jersey concerning encapsulation of asbestos; a list of 30 approved asbestos respirators and manufacturers' names and addresses; respiratory publications available; a suggested schematic representation of a typical decontamination unit for asbestos removal; and a list of asbestos resource personnel and contractors.
