Asbestos, lead and PCBs
Many buildings across the country contain hazardous compounds in building materials that are now regulated under State or Federal law. Northern Arizona University maintains safety programs to manage hazardous compounds such as asbestos, lead, PCB, and silica-containing materials. The purpose of these programs is to protect faculty, staff, students and the general public, maintain compliance with state and federal regulations, and manage any disturbance or waste in a safe and legal fashion.
Before sanding, demolishing, or otherwise disturbing any installed building components, employees must complete and submit the online Work Site Hazard Inspection Request Form. This form initiates the inspection process associated with identifying workplace hazards at NAU. For more information on when inspections are required, please refer to the NAU policy for Hazard Inspections. For more information on inspection turnaround times, please refer to the Inspection Timeframes guideline, or the safety program manuals and training documents below.
