Surveys conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimate that asbestos-containing materials can be found in approximately 31,000 schools and 733,000 other public and commercial buildings in this country. ECU is no exception. Although ECU has to deal with asbestos-containing building material (ACBM), we are proud of our team-oriented, integrated approach to managing this potentially harmful material.
Like managing any potentially harmful material, managing asbestos required everyone's involvement. Everyone should take the time to become aware of the hazards associated with asbestos and then take measures to protect themselves and others from harm. The intent of this webpage is to provide staff, faculty and students with basic information regarding asbestos safety.
