           throughout the City of Oakland on 268 sites, 1,386 units at large

To:               ALL CONTRACTORS AT OHA

SUBJECT:          Asbestos: Notice to Contractors (Connelly Act, AB 3713)

State law requires notification to all Oakland Housing Authority (OHA) Contractors of
the presence or the possible presence of asbestos in certain building materials used in the
construction of OHA buildings.

OHA is conducting an on-going survey to identify those areas at OHA where asbestos
containing building materials (ACBM) are present. For specific locations of ACBM,
please contact Andrew Sinclair at (510) 874-1680.

Certain buildings at OHA contain non-friable asbestos materials in public access areas.
These materials include vinyl asbestos floor tiles, transite, drywall and joint compound,
wall texturing, roofing, plaster, stucco and/or linoleum sheet flooring. The asbestos in
these materials under normal conditions do not pose any danger to the user. If the
material is cracked, drilled, sanded, or otherwise disturbed, however, it could result in the
release of asbestos fibers into the air that could present a health risk. Such work must
only be performed by trained personnel using proper work practices, containment
equipment, and personal protection.

Some other areas contain sprayed-on acoustical material containing asbestos. These
materials may be reduced to powder by hand pressure, but do not present a problem as
long as they are not disturbed. Only trained workers with the proper equipment should
perform work that would have the potential to disturb such materials.

Some fire doors used in stairwells, and the entrances to mechanical rooms and cores in
the larger buildings also contain asbestos. These doors are usually wooden and have a
metal label on the inside edge or top identifying them as having a type "B" fire rating or a
rating of one hour or greater. As long as these doors are intact, they pose no health risk to
building occupants or contractors. Only trained workers with the proper equipment
should perform work that would have the potential to disturb such materials.

Some larger buildings have asbestos materials in areas of restricted public access such as
mechanical rooms and cores. In very few instances, asbestos insulated pipes and
ductwork are in public areas. As long as the materials are not damaged or disturbed and
the outer canvas cover or metal sheathing on the pipes is intact, the insulation presents no
health problem. Only trained workers with the proper equipment should perform work
that would have the potential to disturb such materials.

As building materials are tested and/or abated, the database for asbestos is continually
updated.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about asbestos, please contact
the Asbestos Program Manager, Andrew Sinclair at (510) 874-1680.

Please sign and return the attached certification that you have received a copy of
this document; Asbestos: Notice to Contractors.
