Things a property owner should know about asbestos:
Before authorizing any construction, renovation, remodeling, maintenance, repair or demolition project, you must inspect the premises to determine whether the materials to be handled or removed contain asbestos. Inspectors must be certified through an AHERA-accredited course and must provide you with a written report.
The inspection is not required if either:
The owner is reasonably certain that asbestos will not be disturbed by the project,
The owner assumes that the materials contain asbestos and complies with Dept. of Labor & Industries (DLI) asbestos-handling rules or employs a DLI-certified contractor to conduct the asbestos abatement.
A contractor cannot begin work without receiving the written asbestos inspection report or a written statement of either the owner’s reasonable certainty that asbestos will not be disturbed or his or her assumption that asbestos is present.
The EPA regulates asbestos-containing materials (ACM), including both friable (airborne) asbestos and forms of asbestos that may become friable because of handling, as hazardous air pollutants. For demolition and disposal of friable (airborne) asbestos in Jefferson County you must notify the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency in writing by completing the ‘Notice of Intent to Remove Asbestos’ at least 10 working days before starting work. Call 1-800-422-5623 or visit Olympic Region Clean Air Agency for more information on specific requirements, and to obtain the application form. A fee is paid dependent on the extent of the work.
