The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires school districts to inform school employees, building occupants, or their legal guardians about asbestos inspections, response actions, and post-response action activities, including triennial re-inspections and visual surveillance activities annually. Notifications and warnings are to inform employees, building occupants or others with the potential to come in contact with building Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM). The notification and warning program is mandatory.
At least once every 6 months each local education agency shall conduct periodic surveillance in each building that it leases, owns, or otherwise uses as a school building that contains ACBM or is assumed to contain ACBM. At least once every 3 years each local education agency shall conduct a re-inspection of all friable and non-friable known or assumed ACBM in each school building that they lease, own or otherwise use as a school building.
The first initial inspection at the East Aurora Union Free School District was performed on October 12, 1988. Since that time, the East Aurora Union Free School District has been in compliance and has had 6 month inspections and triennial inspections performed as per OSHA standards by Stohl Environmental, LLC.The Asbestos Management Plan is available for review in the Buildings and Grounds Office.
