Asbestos Removal or Treatment in Oklahoma Schools.
Oklahoma State Department of Education, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Terminal Progress Report :4 pages
A program was developed to provide as much correct information as possible to the public schools in Oklahoma concerning asbestos (1332214) removal or treatment in their buildings. The problem buildings were identified early in the program and ten workshops were conducted on this topic. Workshops were designed to be 3 hours in length. The first workshop was held in July of 1980 with 73 districts sending representatives. Much literature was distributed at the workshop meetings. By April of 1981, 15 of the districts had completely corrected their asbestos problems. A list of 11 asbestos abatement contractors servicing Oklahoma were identified; some were trained at the workshops. All contractors were sent materials concerning recommended and required procedures to be followed. The names of three air sampling laboratories were given to the schools. Information was also disseminated through newspapers, news releases, and the educational TV network concerning asbestos exposure in the schools. On site and telephone assistance was provided for any school district requesting such services. Two major publications resulted from this grant. The first concerned asbestos abatement in the schools and the second displayed bidding documents for asbestos abatement contractors.
