Abstract:

The Asbestos GRADE system is based upon the asbestos risk assessment and abatement prioritization system developed by Versar, Inc. of Springfield VA. The method provides a means by which the Air Force, Command, or base officials may prioritize asbestos abatement for sprayed-on, trowelled-on, or damaged friable asbestos-containing material ACM. Also, included are recommended survey and bulk sampling procedures, a rating and scoring checklist with individual factor definitions, recommended Rating vs Priority follow-up actions, and 15 examples on the use of the rating and scoring checklist.
