Deteriorating      Identify any ACM or PACM that is deteriorating and could fall off due to
ACM or PACM        weather, wind, or other forces. Have it removed or encapsulated by a licensed

housekeeping       of the presence and location of ACM and PACM.




SECTION 5 – REQUIREMENTS FOR HOUSEKEEPING


Introduction       Housekeeping in buildings with ACM or PACM is Class IV asbestos work.
                   This section gives asbestos-related requirements for housekeeping.


Awareness          Persons performing housekeeping or maintenance activities in buildings must
training           receive asbestos awareness training initially, and annually thereafter.
                   Contractors providing housekeeping or maintenance activities in buildings are
                   responsible for providing training to their affected employees.

Floor care            Persons providing floor care where ACM or PACM flooring materials are
                      present must use the following controls:
                       Sanding flooring material is prohibited.
                       Stripping finishes must only be done using wet methods with low abrasion
                          pads and speeds of less than 300 rpm.
                       Dry buffing must only be done on flooring with sufficient finish to prevent
                          the pad from contacting the ACM.




SECTION 6 – REQUIREMENTS FOR DEMOLITION,
RENOVATION, REMOVAL, OR REPAIR WORK


Introduction          Demolition, renovation, removal, and repair are Class I, Class II, and Class III
                      asbestos work. This section describes the requirements for these classes of
                      asbestos work, including:

Contractor            Company personnel are not authorized to disturb ACM or PACM. This
checklist             means that state certified contractors must perform all demolition, renovation,
                      removal, or repair work. Appendix B in this Practice contains a checklist of

6.2 – Project Notification Requirements


Written             Written notification to the administering air agencies is required on all
notification        demolition projects, regardless of the amount of ACM that may be
                    encountered. Notification must be made using a NOTIFICATION OF
                    DEMOLITION AND RENOVATION form, in Appendix C of this Practice,
                    at least 10 working days before the work begins.

NESHAP                Written notification to the administering air agency is also required on all
thresholds            renovation projects that meet any one of the NESHAP thresholds. NESHAP
                      thresholds are projects where the amount of ACM that will be removed or
                      disturbed is greater than:
                       260 linear feet on pipes
                       160 square feet on other facility components
                       35 cubic feet when taken off facility components


Determining           For the purpose of determining a NESHAP threshold, the amount of ACM to
NESHAP                be removed or disturbed must be determined by predicting the amount of
thresholds            ACM that will be removed or disturbed during the full calendar year.


NESHAP                The required written notification for projects that meet NESHAP thresholds
project               must be made using a NOTIFICATION OF DEMOLITION AND

APPENDIX A – Suggested Contract Language for Jobs
Involving Asbestos Exposures

This job involves the potential for employee exposures to asbestos. The Contractor shall comply
with all applicable requirements under the OSHA Construction Asbestos Standard 29 CFR
1926.1101, OSHA General Industry Standard 29 CFR 1910.1001, and EPA - National Emission
Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants – Asbestos (NESHAPS) including the following:

Permissible Exposure Limit: Worker exposures to asbestos shall not exceed 0.1 fibers/cc as an
8-hour, time-weighted average (TWA).

Regulated Areas: The Contractor shall establish regulated areas and meet the applicable
requirements as outlined in Section 1926.1101(e) of the Standard.

Initial Exposure Assessment: A written initial exposure assessment by a competent person using
exposure data less than 1 year old and other objective data prior or at the initiation of the operation
to determine expected exposures. For Class I work, until exposure monitoring has been
performed, it must be presumed that employees are exposed in the PEL and EL areas.

Methods of Compliance: The Contractor shall use the following controls to reduce exposures
associated with activities in regulated areas:
        -      Engineering controls and work practices (1926.1101(g))
        -      Respiratory protection (1926.1101(h))
        -      Protective clothing (1926.1101(i))
        -      Hygiene facilities (1926.1101(j))

Communication of Hazards: The Contractor shall use signs and labels to alert Chevron and
Contractor employees and others of the potential for asbestos exposure as required in Section
1926.1101(k) and in a manner acceptable to Chevron. The Contractor certifies that his or her
employees have received appropriate training on asbestos as outlined in the Standard within the
last year.

Medical Surveillance: The Contractor shall certify that his or her workers meeting the exposure
criteria in Section 1926.1101(m)(l)(i) of the Standard are included in an annual medical
surveillance program.
