The OSHA Asbestos Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.1101 (k))
defines and explains the communication of Asbestos hazards for building owners.
This standard requires that an asbestos inspection survey must be conducted on a building prior to the start of renovation or demolition. It also outlines the requirements for building owners to communicate the hazard of asbestos containing materials to employees or occupants of the building. If an asbestos survey is not conducted prior to construction/renovation activities, the owner is in violation of MIOSHA asbestos standards and may result in monetary citations.
Home owners who are concerned about asbestos containing materials can also inquire about a survey or the collection and testing of samples prior to any home renovations.
