2014 Annual Asbestos Notification

In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, (AHERA) this is to serve as the annual notification for the Salt Lake City School District for 2014. Building re-inspections are being conducted on a six-month cycle. Each school’s Asbestos Management Plan is available for review in the building's main office or the custodial area.

Asbestos awareness training is required annually for all maintenance and custodial personnel and is being completed throughout the year on the district's online safety training program. New employee training should be completed no more than 60 days from the start of employment. Anyone in need of this training or with questions regarding asbestos should contact Steve Bennett in Auxiliary Services at (801) 974-8392.

In the last year, asbestos abatement projects have been completed at Lincoln Elementary and Highland High School. We are currently planning any projects that will be needed in the coming year.
