Asbestos Inventory

University buildings have been inspected and sampled for asbestos-containing materials and presumed asbestos-containing materials. The asbestos inventory is managed by Occupational Safety and Health staff.

If there is renovation work planned, place a work order in the charge-back system for a pre-construction hazard assessment.

The inventory should be used as a general reference only. Do not print this listing and assume this is a final list of all asbestos-containing materials in the building. It is updated as needed by OSH staff. Specific locations of asbestos-containing materials can be obtained by contacting OSH staff at osh@umd.edu.

The inventory is currently undergoing maintenance. Please call ESSR if you need access to identified ACM in buildings.  

FY19 Asbestos Management Plan
