Asbestos Removal, Abatement & Testing across West Haven, Utah
Asbestos investigations are the heart of our business. Regulations for asbestos building materials were started in the Reagen era and continue today. Asbestos is found in thousands of common building materials and is still imported into the United States. Federal and state regulation require inspections before any demolition of remediation. Salt Lake County also requires an inspection for Universal Waste Materials such as car batteries, chemicals, mercury and PCBs before demolition of a structure.

- AHERA Management Plans (Schools)
"The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires schools to "ensure that workers and building occupants, or their legal guardians, are informed at least once each school year about inspections, response actions, and post-response action activities, including periodic reinspection and surveillance activities that are planned or in progress (763.84(c)). Such notification must be done in writing and a copy placed in the management plan. Suggested notification methods may be through the publication of an article in a school district newsletter or through a separate written notice distributed to staff and sent home to a student's parent or legal guardian."
TAG Environmental provides both three-year inspections and new management plans for schools with grades K-12 for public, charter and private entities.

To this end we can provide simple, project-specific Operations and Maintenance Plans tailored to the specific materials. These plans include information for training of asbestos awareness and OSHA Class II, III and IV. All reports are uploaded to a secure Website with login information provided to the client.

- Abatement Bid Services
TAG Environmental works extensively with asbestos abatement contractors throughout the Rocky Mountain region. We offer bid services to assist clients in pre-qualification of contractors, pre-bid services, and selection of contractors to bid the work, conduct the bid opening and selection of the best-qualified contractor for the most cost-effective project.
- Contract Administration
Specifications include specific contract language to enforce compliance with the many regulations affecting asbestos. TAG Environmental writes these contracts tailored to the clients needs.
- Abatement Project Management
During the course of the asbestos removal, a representative is on-site to respond to compliance questions, monitor inside and outside air levels, enforce compliance and provide for the clients best interest. Upon completion, the client is provided with required closeout documentation detailing daily activities, waste records and certification and medical records.
- Air Monitoring
During abatement, air sampling is conducted to determine if any asbestos is escaping from the containment. An independent laboratory analyzes these samples, and the results posted within 24 hours. This provides the client with backup documentation needed to demonstrate compliance and support remedial actions.
- Third-party Analysis Services
All bulk and air samples are submitted to a NVLAP certified laboratory for analysis to eliminate any question of conflict of interest.
- Asbestos Awareness Employee Training
Both OSHA and AHERA require maintenance and custodial/housekeeping employees to receive some degree of asbestos awareness training if the employees' building contains asbestos building materials. In addition, we provide Class II removal training and asbestos awareness training to employees that work in a building or facility that contains asbestos materials.

All TAG Environmental staff members stay up-to-date on the complex and ever changing regulations affecting asbestos. TAG Environmental believes that the regulations can be enforced without unduly causing a burden on the building owner.
