  1. ASBESTOS CONTROL PROGRAM

  2. REFERENCES 29 CFR 1910.1001 & 1926.1101 MCO 5100.8F, Chapter 16

  3. POLICY The substitution of asbestos with non-asbestos materials The use of engineering, administrative controls & personal protective equipment where substitution is not possible

  4. WHAT IS ASBESTOS? • A Naturally Occurring Mineral • Mined from the Earth: • Strong & Long Lasting • Incombustible • Highly Resistant to Chemicals • Poor Conductor of Heat and • Electricity

  5. Asbestos Containing Material Friable - Crumbled or Reduced to powder by hand pressure Friability - the likelihood that fibers will break loose and become airborne. Non-Friable - Usually found bonded into other materials

  6. Materials Containing Asbestos • Suspended ceiling tiles • Thickening agents in paints • Exterior siding shingles • Fireproof curtains • Vinyl flooring • Friction products (brake & clutch facings) • Reinforcing materials (cement pipe & sheet materials) • Primary insulation and lagging material for high temperature machinery, boilers, and piping

  7. ENTRY INTO THE BODY • BY INHALATION • BY INGESTION • In the body, asbestos fibers can become • embedded in the tissues of the respiratory • tract (alveoli) or the digestive system. • Twenty to 40 years before symptoms • appear to asbestos exposure. Three • distinct diseases can be caused by inhalation • or ingestion

  8. Health Hazards of Smoking Asbestos workers who smoke have a 50 times greater chance of getting lung cancer than those workers who do not smoke

  9. Medical Surveillance Program • All Marine Corps personnel upon assignment to a work activity involving potential exposure to asbestos shall have a medical evaluation

  10. Working with Asbestos SHALL BE WORKED IN A WET STATE TO PREVENT EMISSION OF AIR-BORNE FIBERS HANDLING REMOVING CUTTING

  11. Working with Asbestos (cont’d) Asbestos Workers Shall Not: - Eat / Drink - Chew Tobacco - Chew gum - Smoke - Apply Cosmetics In Designated Work Area(s)

  12. PersonalProtective Equipment PROTECTIVE CLOTHING PROTECTIVE FOOTWEAR RESPIRATORY PROTECTION Personnel involved in handling asbestos containing materials during “removal operations”

  13. PrivateContractorWork • Ensure that contractors are aware of potential hazards and shall maintain strict compliance with 29 CFR 1926.1101 and MCO 5100.8F, Chapter 16

  14. Warning Signs D A N G E R ASBESTOS Cancer and Lung Disease Hazard Authorized Personnel Only Respirators And Protective Clothing Are Required In This Area

  15. Disposal Procedures • Must be adequately wetted • Double bagged in heavy duty • plastic • Dumpsters shall be labeled "Asbestos Waste Only"

  16. T r a i n i n g An employee who works with, handles or may be exposed to asbestos fibers shall receive initial training and annually thereafter

  17. T r a i n i n g (cont'd) • Training shall include: • The health effects and hazards of asbestos • Association between the use of smoking and asbestos exposure in producing lung cancer • Uses of asbestos which could result in an exposure • Engineering controls and work practices associated with an employees' work assignment

  18. T r a i n i n g (cont'd) • Purpose, proper use and limitations of protective equipment • Purpose and description of asbestos medical surveillance • Description of emergency and clean-up procedures • Overall review of MCO 5100.8F Chapter 16 and the command/activity instruction concerning asbestos work operations • Documentation of training

  19. CONCLUSION • IDENTIFY ALL ASBESTOS CONTAINING MATERIALS IN THE WORK PLACE • MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS • PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT • POST WARNING SIGNS IN ALL ASBESTOS WORK AREAS • LABEL AND DISPOSE OF PROPERLY • ENFORCEMENT OF THE PROGRAM
