Annual Notification Regarding Asbestos Materials

 

October 8, 2021

 

 

Annual Notification to Parents/Guardians, Teachers and Employee Organizations:

 

The “Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools” (Regulation (Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, (RCSA) Sections 19a-333-1 through 19a-333-13) require that parents, teachers, and employee organizations are provided with an annual written notification of the availability of the asbestos management plans for each of our school buildings1.  These plans have been developed by an EPA-accredited, State of Connecticut licensed asbestos management planner.

 

The Thomas G. Alcorn School maintains in its Administrative Office/Head Custodian Office a complete updated copy of the asbestos management plan.  It is available during normal business hours for inspection.  The designated person for the Asbestos Program is Andrew B. Longey and can be contacted at 860-253-6533.

 

Activities:

 

  • The asbestos-containing building materials are inspected every six (6) months (periodic surveillance) and the person who performs the surveillance notes any change in the condition since the last inspection.
  • All our custodian and maintenance staff have had at least two hours of asbestos awareness training.
  • Each school building is re-inspected every three (3) years by a Connecticut licensed asbestos inspector under the provisions of the regulations2.

 

Section management plans section A/B etc. of the management plan includes a description of the steps taken to inform workers and building occupants, or their legal guardians, about inspections, reinspection response actions and post-response action activities, including periodic reinspection and surveillance activities planned or in progress.

 

The asbestos management plan (APM) must be updated to include any information necessary to keep the plan current and up to date3,4.  We remind you that this notification is required by law and should not be construed to indicate the existence of any hazardous conditions in our school buildings.
