Act school asbestos management plans can be a valuable tool for monitoring future occurrences and ensuring the safety of our campus,” he said.
A spokesman for the state Department of Environmental Conservation said the agency is currently in the process of reviewing the new plans.
In a statement Friday, the department said it recognizes “the seriousness of the potential asbestos risk in the buildings.”
However, the department added that it would encourage residents not to touch the buildings until the construction has been completed and that it was looking into new measures to further reduce the risks posed by those materials.
Construction on the four towers was halted after the initial health threat was identified in July 2015, and the city has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean up and repair the buildings.
The latest testing from the Georgia Department of Public Safety and the U.S. EPA shows that about 13 workers have become exposed to asbestos during the constru더킹카지노ction process and that seven of the 15 buildings have been retrofitted. The testing does not provide the full picture of the total asbestos exposure.
In addition, the state is considering whether to order additional testing for residents who worked on the project, the spokesman said.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring substance that forms when the heat of a fire burns out some of the trapped air spaces in an object. Because asbestos is nonconductive, its removal from an object increases the rate of its breakdown — even if the breakage was caused by the heat.
“Asbestos-repellent materials can protect homes against a variety of potential hazards, such as moisture, mildew, dust mites and insects,” state documjarvees.coments say. “Asbestos-repellent materials are useful when buildings, or buildings and buildings and buildings are being constructed around them.”
But if the asbestos was in fact contained in the buildings, the health risks would be enormous, the state report says. The agency estimated that “this risk is similar to a potential cancer risk when asbestos exposure in the building environment is higher than the potential 바카라risk in the community.”
