Do Not Press Your Luck With Your Asbestos Management Plan
Do not press your luck with your asbestos management plan
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but the 1980’s are coming back! Just look at the TV show and movie reboots that are happening, and I’m sure you’ve heard some of those great 80’s classic songs a bit more lately. Something else I’ve seen is a resurgence of 80’s game shows. I’ve seen the classic “Press Your Luck” on TV, and it immediately reminded me of the phrase “No whammies! Stop!”. Without a doubt, the Whammy is one of the great TV game show villains of all time, rivaled only by Alex Trebek’s accent when pronouncing foreign words. So it got me to thinking about how schools can avoid getting a whammy from regulatory agencies when it comes to asbestos management plans. It’s no fun getting a letter detailing asbestos management plan deficiencies after a visit from the regulatory folks. Kind of like getting a whammy.
Regulatory agencies have increased frequency of school asbestos management plan inspections. They’re finding many of the same asbestos management plan violations.
Here we’ll cover the most common asbestos management plan violations and how to fix your asbestos management plan so you can avoid the Whammy.
The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality has stepped up efforts to ensure school systems comply with state and federal asbestos regulations. They’re getting around to schools, especially ones they haven’t yet visited.
