Annual Parental Notification of Asbestos Management Plans
This notice is to inform all parents, faculty and staff of the availability of the asbestos management plan for each building under the jurisdiction of the Haverford Township School District (HTSD), as required by law. In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), 40 CRF Part 763.93, HTSD conducted initial inspections of all the School District buildings for the presence of Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) in 1988. An asbestos management plan for each building was developed at that time, detailing the location and condition of all ACBM along with the short-term actions to be taken to protect building occupants, and documentation of response actions. These management plans are available for review by any interested person at either the HTSD Maintenance Facility located at 50 W. Hilltop Road, Havertown, PA; or at the individual School during normal working hours. AHERA regulations require re-inspections of all ACBM every three years by an accredited building inspector, and this includes an update of the Management Plan. The latest 3-year re-inspection and management plan update was provided by Element Environmental Solutions, Inc. in March 2015.
The AHERA regulations also require surveillance inspections of all ACBM every six months, by an individual with training and knowledge of ACM. The last inspection was performed on September 25th, 2015 and the next 6 month inspection is scheduled to be completed in March 2016. These reports and management plan updates are also available for review by any interested person at either the HTSD Maintenance Facility located at 50 W. Hilltop Road, Havertown, PA; or at the individual School during normal working hours.
