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.
