Asbestos

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber, once widely used in building materials and products for its thermal insulating properties and fire resistance.

Intact, undisturbed asbestos-containing materials generally do not pose a health risk. These materials may become hazardous and pose increased risk if they are damaged, are disturbed in some manner, or deteriorate over time and release asbestos fibers into building air. A number of building materials and products still in use today contain asbestos. Asbestos remains in use as an acoustic insulator, and in thermal insulation, fire proofing, roofing, flooring and other materials.

Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745-20 contains regulations for controlling asbestos emissions from demolition and renovation projects. Ohio's regulations are consistent with U.S. EPA's National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) standards for asbestos.

The regulations require that contractors do several things, such as provide a notification; conduct thorough inspections to determine the presence of asbestos; follow specific work practices; and ensure proper disposal of asbestos-containing material.

The latest changes to the Asbestos Emission Control regulations became effective on March 2, 2012. These rules affect contractors, landfills and large projects. The rule changes were implemented to provide clarification and to make the rules consistent with the federal asbestos NESHAP regulations at 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart M. Some of the changes include:

  • A change to the definition of “small fragments” in Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) rule 3745-20-01. OAC Rule 3745-20-01 now defines “small fragments” as four (4) square inches or less to be friable or regulated asbestos containing material (RACM). Also, large projects involving the renovation/demolition of multiple residential structures are to be considered a “Facility” (see 3745-20-01 Definitions [PDF])
  • OAC Rule 3745-20-05 has been changed to require that all category two material (Cat ll) to be disposed at a regulated asbestos landfill. (see 3745-20-05 Standard for asbestos waste handling [PDF])
