It is the goal of Stony Brook University to assure the health and safety of the students, staff and faculty. We want to maintain the ACM on campus in good condition and remove ACM when necessary. Environmental Health and Safety has certified asbestos supervisors and handlers on staff who are available to repair or remove damaged ACM throughout the campus, as well as certified asbestos air sampling technicians to perform air monitoring. When bulk and/or air sampling is performed, the cost of laboratory sampling is passed along to the requesting department.
Please contact Environmental Health and Safety if you should observe damaged ACM or if you feel asbestos has been disturbed in your work area.
Environmental Health and Safety
Respirator use is recommended for those whose work may inadvertently disturb ACM. Prior to being assigned a respirator, a worker must have a medical examination that assures the worker's ability to wear a respirator, receive training, and pass qualitative fit testing.
Respirator use training and qualitative fit testing is provided by Environmental Health and Safety.
