                                          ARE REQUIRED IN THIS AREA

        The methods of marking a regulated area are determined by engineering controls used. The use
        of barrier tape, critical barriers, or negative pressure enclosures may be used, depending on the
        class of work and configuration of the work area.

                Critical barriers or negative pressure enclosures themselves may serve to mark the
                regulated area.

                Markings are not required for Class II and III activities proving there are no occupants
                having access to the regulated area and all entry points are posted.

        An Asbestos Supervisor shall supervise asbestos activities occurring inside the regulated area.
        This includes ensuring the area is posted, limiting access to authorized personnel, requiring use of
        appropriate protective clothing and equipment, establishing decontamination practices and
        facilities, and fulfilling other duties as required.

                Certified asbestos workers shall conduct asbestos work activities—preparation,
                abatement, and wrapping of waste.

                HPTs and other technical support personnel are authorized personnel, permitted in the
                regulated area per the direction of the Asbestos Supervisor, to support work activities.

4.1.5   IH Programs

        Asbestos Coordinator to manage asbestos information, review and maintain configuration control
        over the Asbestos Work Permit and Negative Exposure Assessment documents, review AHERA
        inspection and material documentation information, and, assist S&H staff and Facility
        Management staff in managing asbestos hazards.

4.1.6   Credible Evidence Documenting that a Material Does Not Contain Asbestos

        Wood, glass (including fiberglass), metal, and rubber may be assumed ―asbestos-free‖ per
        AHERA. Material other than wood, glass (including fiberglass), metal, rubber, soil, and typical
        concrete, shall be presumed asbestos-containing material (PACM) unless there is credible
        evidence to rebut a material designation as an ACM.

        NOTE: Concrete that appears atypical needs to be evaluated for asbestos.

        The following objective evidence is accepted as credible evidence to rebut designation as an
        ACM:

                Bulk sample results from limited AHERA inspection

                work package that is retrievable, and/or can be verified with a visual inspection of the
                existing gasket.

                NOTE: Garlock Blue-Gard 3000 gaskets have always been ―asbestos-free.‖ These are
                blue, marked with the logo, and thicker than the black/dark brown AGs. AHERA
                Inspectors and Asbestos Supervisors may identify these materials in the field as
                ―asbestos-free.‖

                The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) showing that asbestos is not a constituent at
                >1%.

5.0   DEFINITIONS

      Asbestos-containing material (ACM). Any material containing >1% asbestos fiber.

      Authorized person. Any person required by work duties to be present in regulated areas, with
      consent of Asbestos Supervisor.

      Critical barrier. One or more layers of plastic sealed over all openings into a work area or any
      other similarly placed physical barrier sufficient to prevent airborne asbestos in a work area from
      migrating to an adjacent area.

      Decontamination area. An enclosed area adjacent and connected to the regulated area; consisting
      of an equipment room, shower room, and clean room; used for decontamination of workers,
      materials, and equipment that are contaminated with asbestos.

      Directed ventilation. In regulated area, move contaminated air away from the decontamination
      facility, towards a HEPA filtered negative air machine. In general, start work at the most distal
      point away from the ventilation, toward the most proximal.

      Employee exposure. Exposure to airborne asbestos that would occur, without regard to use of
      respiratory protection.

      Excursion limit (EL). The maximum level of airborne asbestos fibers an employee may be
      exposed to, when measured as a 30-minute peak exposure. The asbestos EL is 1.0 f/cc of air,
      averaged over 30-minutes.

      Fiber. A particle, 5 micrometers (µm) or longer in length, with a length-to-width ratio of at least
      3 to 1.

      Friable. When dry, a material that can be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to a powder under
      hand pressure; when the matrix of a material no longer binds and fiber is freely released.

      High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. A filter capable of trapping and retaining at least
      99.97 % of particles to a size of 0.3 micrometers (µm) in diameter.

      Homogeneous area. An area of surfacing material or thermal system insulation that is uniform in
      color and texture.

      Intact. An ACM that has not been crumbled, pulverized, or otherwise deteriorated so that
      asbestos is no longer bound in its matrix.

      Negative exposure assessment (NEA). A demonstration by the employer that employee exposure
      during an operation is expected to be consistently below the permissible exposure limits, as
      outlined in (f)(2) (iii) of the asbestos standard.

    Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). The maximum level of airborne asbestos fibers an employee
    may be exposed to when measured as an eight-hour time weighted average (8-hr TWA). The
    Asbestos PEL is 0.1 f/cc, 8-hr TWA. (Also see excursion limit.)

    Presumed asbestos-containing material (PACM). TSI and surfacing material. Designation of a
    material as ―PACM‖ may be rebutted with AHERA bulk sampling results or specifications
    identifying use of ―asbestos-free‖ materials.

    Project designer. A person who has successfully completed the training requirements for an
    abatement project designer specified by 40 CFR 763.90(g). A project engineer or certified
    industrially hygienist (CIH) serving in this role must also participate in the AHERA training
    course.

    Regulated area. An area established to designate where Class I, II, and III asbestos work is
    conducted, and adjoining areas where waste and contaminated equipment are staged. A work
    area where airborne concentrations of asbestos exceed, or are reasonably anticipated to exceed,
    the PELs.

    Repair. Overhauling, rebuilding, reconstructing, or reconditioning of structures or substrates,
    including encapsulation or other repair of asbestos-containing material or presumed asbestos-
    containing material attached to structures or substrates.

    Surfacing material. Material that is sprayed-on, troweled-on, or otherwise applied to surfaces
    (such as acoustical plaster on ceilings and fireproofing materials on structural members, or other
    materials on surfaces for acoustical, fireproofing, and other purposes).

    Tank Operations Contractor (TOC). The prime contractor having responsibility over Hanford
    Tank Farm operations.

    Thermal system insulation (TSI). Asbestos-containing material applied to pipes, fittings, boilers,
    breeching, tanks, ducts, or other structural components to prevent heat loss or gain.

    NOTE: For TOC operations, this does not include asphaltic mastic installed over TSI as
    weatherproofing.

over an 8-hour TWA.
2
  Shower area must be adjacent to both the equipment and clean rooms unless work is performed outdoors or this arrangement is
not feasible—in either case the employer must ensure that employees remove asbestos contamination from their worksuits in the
equipment area using a HEPA vacuum before proceeding to a shower not adjacent to the work area, or remove their
contaminated worksuits in the equipment room, don clean worksuits, and proceed to a shower not adjacent to the work area.

               >10 linear or 48 square feet of TSI or Surfacing ACM
               <10 linear or 48 square feet of TSI or Surfacing ACM if NEA has not been established
               for employees working adjacent to regulated area while Class I work is performed.

2.     Perform exposure and perimeter air sampling and visual inspections of critical barriers/isolation
       during each work shift, at boundaries to the regulated area.

             Verify clearance levels specified in 40 CFR 763, Subpart E, <0.01 f/cc, are being
             maintained in clean room, outside of the regulated area, and downstream of negative air
             machines.

3.     Isolate HVAC and use directed ventilation if NEA has not been established or airborne
       concentrations are reasonably anticipated to exceed PELs.

4.     One or more of the following controls must be used as listed in OSHA 1926.1101(g)(5):

                NPE;
                Negative-pressure glove bag for pipe runs;
                Glove bag for connecting configurations designed for this purpose;
                Water spray process.

5.     Doff outer layer of protective clothing in Equipment Room; Exit through contiguous
       Decontamination Shower and remove respirator facepiece in shower; Enter Clean room in
       modesty clothing (bathing suit).

Outdoor work:

1.     Establish and post a regulated area. Use critical barriers/isolation and drop cloths when removing:

                >10 linear or 48 square feet of TSI or surfacing ACM removal
                <10 linear or 48 square feet of TSI or Surfacing ACM if NEA has not been established
                for employees working adjacent to regulated area while Class I work is performed.

2.     Perform exposure sampling, engineering control check (negative air machine exhaust) as
       applicable, and visual inspections of critical barriers/isolation during each work shift, at
       boundaries to the regulated area;

                Verify clearance levels specified in 40 CFR 763, Subpart E, <0.01 f/cc, are being
                maintained downstream of negative air machine exhaust.

               regulated area;
               Exit tank farm, or field location, shower at nearest available facility.

Class I Alternate Controls

For <10 linear or 48 square feet:

1.     Asbestos Supervisor may evaluate the work area, practices, and engineering controls to ensure
       exposures are below asbestos PELs;

               Enclose, contain, or isolate, or capture, or redirect away from employee’s breathing zone.

               Use worst case exposure monitoring results to demonstrate anticipated airborne fiber.

               May omit perimeter or clearance monitoring for work completed outdoors where
               employees are not working in areas adjacent to regulated areas.

For >10 linear or 48 square feet:

1.     Asbestos Supervisor may evaluate the work area, practices, and engineering controls to ensure
       exposures are below ELs:

               Enclose, contain, or isolate, or capture, or redirect away from employee’s breathing zone.

2.     CIH or PE, also qualified as an AHERA Project Designer, evaluates work area, work practices,

            ATTACHMENT B - ASBESTOS FLOOR MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES

Recommended Interim Guidelines: Stripping Asbestos-Containing Floors

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and The Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) (OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1101) recommend that school officials, building owners, and
custodial/maintenance staff follow basic guidelines when stripping wax or finish coat from asbestos-
containing floor covering:

1. AVOID STRIPPING FLOORS. Stripping of floors should be done as infrequently as possible --
perhaps once or twice or less per year depending on circumstances. The frequency should be carefully
considered as floor maintenance schedules or contracts are written or renewed.

2. PROPERLY TRAIN STAFF. Custodial or maintenance staff who strip floors should be trained to
operate properly and safely the machines, pads, and floor care chemicals used at the facility.

3. FOLLOW APPROPRIATE WORK PRACTICES. Custodial or maintenance staff who strip floors
should follow appropriate work practices, such as those recommended here, under informed supervision.
Directions from floor tile and floor wax product manufacturers on proper maintenance procedures should
be consulted.

4. STRIP FLOORS WHILE WET. The floor should be kept adequately wet during the stripping
operation. Do NOT perform dry stripping. Prior to machine operation, an emulsion of chemical stripper
in water is commonly applied to the floor with a mop to soften the wax or finish coat. After stripping and
before application of the new wax, the floor should be thoroughly cleaned, while wet.

5. RUN MACHINE AT SLOW SPEED. If the machine used to remove the wax or finish coat has
variable speeds, it should be run at slow speed (UNDER 300 rpm) during the stripping operation.

6. SELECT THE LEAST ABRASIVE PAD POSSIBLE. EPA recommends that the machine be
equipped with the least abrasive pad possible to strip wax or finish coat from asbestos-containing floors.

7. DO NOT OVERSTRIP FLOORS. Stop stripping when the old surface coat is removed.
Overstripping can damage the floor and may cause the release of asbestos fibers. Do NOT operate a floor
machine with an abrasive pad on unwaxed or unfinished floors.

8. SANDING OF ASBESTOS-CONTAINING FLOORING MATERIAL IS PROHIBITED.

REMEMBER: Improperly removing asbestos-containing floor covering could result in the release of
high levels of asbestos. EPA recommends that you leave asbestos-containing floor covering in place,
provided the material is in good condition. However, proper maintenance procedures, such as those
outlined above, should always be followed.

These guidelines were developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in consultation with
asbestos control professionals and several flooring material and floor care product manufacturers to
reduce any possible exposure to asbestos fibers.
