Asbestos Awareness for KSU Building Occupants (WTD166)
The Environmental Health and Safety department is offering asbestos awareness training to anyone interested in learning more about what asbestos is, health concerns associated with it, and where it can be found on campus.
Asbestos can be found in almost every building on campus with the exception of those built in the last few years. It is most common to find asbestos in any building built before 1981.
We have found asbestos applied to ceilings, between floors, vermiculite insulation, on plumbing, inside some doors, as parts as HVAC systems, air ducts, floor tiles, glues and mastics, as well as architectural features. As long as the asbestos is not damaged, we try to get it fixed as quickly as possible to avoid endangering building occupants.
All university employees are encouraged to attend this training. It is the employee's responsibility to obtain their necessary departmental approvals prior to enrolling.
