Building owners that decide to manage asbestos or lead containing paint in place, rather than removal, should develop and implement Operations and Maintenance Plans. Properly designed plans provide the framework for compliance with the various training, notification, contractor management and abatement controls that are required by EPA and OSHA regulations. O & M Plans prepared by EA Group are customized for the owner and the specific property, and typically include the following sections:

– Designated personnel and asbestos related duties
– Worker training: requirements and execution
– Procedures for avoiding exposure of building occupants
– Work practices for small scale events
– Re-inspection procedures
– Procedures for notification: internal staff and outside contractors
– Procedures for labeling
