1VAC30-20-100. Signs, labels, and notification.

Every location at which asbestos is suspected or identified shall be clearly marked with suitably designed signs or labels or the building occupants shall be notified of the location and condition of the asbestos containing material within the building and the existence of a plan for its management, in writing.

1. Every mechanical room where asbestos is identified shall have at least one sign located in a conspicuous place at each entrance which contains appropriate wording (e.g., WARNING CEILING MATERIAL CONTAINS ASBESTOS. DO NOT DISTURB).

2. Locations containing any materials identified or suspected to contain asbestos shall be reported in order to provide a permanent record for future reference by the facility and shall be included in the plan.

3. All thermal system insulation with suspected or known asbestos-containing materials shall be labeled accordingly (e.g., WARNING SUSPECTED ASBESTOS. DO NOT DISTURB). The labels shall be painted on or affixed to the insulation or covering in a color that contrasts with the color of the material at intervals that would prevent someone from disturbing the material without knowing that it does or is likely to contain asbestos.
