AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY

RESPIRATORS AND PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

ARE REQUIRED IN THIS AREA

      (g) Negative pressure ventilation units with HEPA filtration and in sufficient number to provide one (1) workplace air change every fifteen (15) minutes shall be operated continuously for the duration of the project. The duration of the project for this requirement shall be considered to be from the time that a containment area is established and wall and floor sheeting are installed through the time that acceptable final clearance air monitoring results are obtained.

      (h) All friable asbestos material shall be thoroughly wetted through to the substrate prior to removal.

      (i) Facility components shall be removed intact or in large sections whenever possible and shall be carefully lowered to the floor. Other friable asbestos material shall be removed in small sections.

      (j) Materials located at heights greater than fifteen (15) feet but less than or equal to fifty (50) feet above the floor shall be dropped into inclined chutes or onto scaffolding or containerized at their elevated levels for eventual disposal. For materials located at heights greater than fifty (50) feet above the floor, a dust-tight enclosed chute shall be constructed to transport removed material to containers on the floor.

      (k) At no time shall the friable asbestos material that has been removed be allowed to accumulate or become dry.

      (l) For porous surfaces that have been stripped of friable asbestos materials, a lockdown agent shall be applied to securely seal any residual fibers that may be present. The lockdown agent should be chosen so as to be compatible with subsequent covering.

      (m) Following abatement, wall sheeting and floor sheeting shall be removed and containerized for disposal. A sequence of HEPA filtration vacuuming, wet wiping all exposed surfaces, and surface drying shall be performed until no visible residue is observed in the work area. A minimum of twenty-four (24) hours after wet wiping shall be required to ensure that sufficient drying has occurred.

      (n) All asbestos-containing waste, except for large facility components, shall be thoroughly wetted before being placed into containers for disposal. Large components shall be thoroughly wetted before being wrapped in polyethylene sheeting for disposal. Disposal shall occur at locations identified in paragraph (u) of this subsection.

      (o) Wet asbestos-containing waste shall be double bagged in polyethylene bags placed in sealed, rigid containers (for example: steel drums, fiber drums, or heavy cardboard boxes) for transport to the approved landfill identified in paragraph (u) of this subsection. Large facility components may be wrapped in two (2) layers of polyethylene sheeting which are secured with waterproof tape for disposal.

      (p) All polyethylene sheeting that is used in an asbestos abatement project shall be treated as asbestos-containing waste.

      (q) All wrapping or containerizing of asbestos-containing waste shall be done in such a manner so as to prevent the outside of the wrapping or container from being contaminated with asbestos fibers.

      (r) All packaged wastes (boxes, drums, and wrapped components) shall be labeled according to the provisions of 40 CFR 61.152, filed by reference in 401 KAR 58:025.

      (s) Clearance air monitoring shall be performed. At least five (5) samples of air per work area, or one (1) sample per room, whichever is greater, shall be obtained for the clearance air monitoring. A sample volume of 3,000 liters of air shall be used. The air samples shall be obtained when the air is being artificially circulated so that the fibers remain airborne during the sampling. Barriers shall not be dismantled, and openings shall not be uncovered, until the final samples show total fiber concentrations of less than or equal to 0.01 fibers per cubic centimeter of air. The method for determining compliance with the provisions of this paragraph shall be either of the methods specified in Appendix M to "Guidance for Controlling Asbestos-Containing Materials in Buildings" (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances, EPA 560/5-85-024, June 1985). Appendix M, "Detailed Specifications for Sampling and Analyzing Airborne Asbestos," is hereby adopted and filed herein by reference.

      1. Copies of Appendix M to "Guidance for Controlling Asbestos-Containing Materials in Buildings" are available for sale from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

      (2) Demolitions addressed in 401 KAR 58:025. Any asbestos abatement entity that engages in any asbestos abatement project which is determined to be subject to 401 KAR 58:025 and involves demolition shall comply with the following work practice requirements:

      (a) Any demolition of a structure or portion of a structure which contains facility components composed of or covered by friable asbestos material shall be preceded by a removal of all such materials prior to demolition, according to the requirements of subsection (1) of this section.

      (b) In lieu of the requirements specified in subsection (1)(a), (b), (c), (e), and (l) of this section, asbestos abatement entities engaging in demolition activities shall comply with the following requirements:

      1. Before beginning a demolition project, all doors, windows, floor drains, vents, and other openings to the outside of the building and to areas within the building that do not contain asbestos materials, shall be sealed off with polyethylene sheeting and waterproof tape; and

      2. If a structure is to be partially demolished, all HVAC equipment in the demolition area or passing through it but servicing areas of the building which will remain, shall be shut down, locked out, tagged to advise personnel not to activate the equipment, and thoroughly sealed with polyethylene sheeting and waterproof tape.

      (c) Clearance air monitoring as described in subsection (1)(s) of this section shall be required, following abatement activities conducted for demolition purposes, prior to demolition.

      (d) All other requirements of subsection (1) of this section, unless specifically deleted in paragraph (b) of this subsection, shall apply to demolition abatement activities.

      (3) Any asbestos abatement entity engaged in an asbestos abatement project, including emergency operations, not subject to the requirements of subsections (1) and (2) of this section shall take reasonable precautions to prevent the release of asbestos fibers to the outside air. Such precautions shall include, but not be limited to:

      (a) Construction of adequate barriers or use of wall and floor sheeting to contain asbestos fibers released within the containment area;

      (b) Wetting of all friable asbestos materials prior to removal and keeping them wet until containerized;

      (c) Use of HEPA filtration vacuum equipment and wet cleaning techniques to clean up the work area following the project until there is no visible residue;

      (d) Appropriately wrapping or containerizing asbestos-containing waste and labeling the packaged waste (wrapped components, boxes, or fiber or metal drums); and

      (e) Transportation to and disposal at a location identified in subsection (1)(u) of this section in a manner that does not release fibers into the outside air.

      (4) In lieu of the work practice requirements of subsection (1)(a) to (e), (g), (i), (m), (n), (p), and (s) of this section, subsection (2)(b) and (c) of this section, and subsection (3)(a) and (c) of this section, the asbestos abatement entity may elect to use the glove bag technique for an asbestos abatement project. Such technique is an acceptable alternative to those requirements. The cabinet may, on a case-by-case basis, approve other alternative work practice requirements for an asbestos abatement project provided that the asbestos abatement entity submits the alternative to the requirements to the cabinet, in writing prior to beginning the asbestos abatement project, and demonstrates to the satisfaction of the cabinet that compliance with the requirements prescribed in this section is not practical or not feasible and that the proposed alternative to the requirements provides an equivalent control of asbestos and is not in conflict with any applicable local, state, or federal law.
