Annual Asbestos Notification - AHERA
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT ASBESTOS IN SCHOOLS
This information, dated July 1, 2018, is provided as partial fulfillment of AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act) rules requiring annual notification of workers and building occupants or their legal guardians of inspections, response actions, and post response action activities, including periodic re-inspections and surveillance activities that are planned or in progress.
Every three years, the Bensalem Township School District, is required to update its AHERA Asbestos Management Plan. The purpose of this plan is to summarize previous abatement response actions, summarize findings and ACBM classification and recommend response actions. A copy of the plan is available at the Dorothy D. Call Administrative Center, 3000 Donallen Drive, Bensalem, PA 19020. Each school containing any asbestos containing materials also receives a copy of the plan to keep in their main office.
The District continues to update and improve the AHERA Asbestos Management Plans. This work includes the sampling of materials that were originally assumed to contact asbestos. The improvement in the AHERA Asbestos Management Plans are intended to make them easier to use by District custodial and maintenance workers and outside contractors that perform work within District buildings.
If you should have any questions regarding asbestos or the District's asbestos program, please contact our Facilities Department at 215-750-2800, Ext. 4300.
