Oklahoma Environmental Services (OES) offers comprehensive services for the identification and management of asbestos containing materials. OES personnel are licensed under the Oklahoma Department of Labor to provide asbestos inspections in general accordance with EPA regulation 40 CFR 763, the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) for the identification of asbestos containing materials for National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) required demolition surveys, remodels, or for property transactions. The asbestos NESHAP requires that potentially regulated asbestos-containing building materials be identified, classified and quantified prior to planned disturbances or demolition activities. OES personnel are trained to develop operation and maintenance (O&M) plans for the management in place of asbestos containing materials. O&M plans are developed for the purpose of minimizing and/or eliminating the possibility of exposure to airborne asbestos fibers which allows identified asbestos containing materials to remain in place to minimize the cost of a full asbestos abatement.
