Abstract : The document provides protocol for evaluating friable asbestos material conditions and determining, by use of the asbestos hazard index, if a Navy Occupational and Health deficiency abatement project should be initiated. Also included are: guidance on proper interim control measures, as well as guidance for selecting appropriate long-term control measures; writing valid specification for long-term control measures; standardized safety procedures; and personnel protection during maintenance and control of friable asbestos-containing insulating systems and during disposal of asbestos materials. The long-term control measures emphasize the need for choice of a cost-effective, energy-conserving alternative which will meet current fiber pollution restrictions. (Author)
