For many years, asbestos was used in common building materials. Many facilities on RMU campuses were constructed during the time asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) were used. To verify which facilities contain ACBM, a detailed inspection was conducted in suspect facilities to identify, quantify and locate these materials. If maintained in good condition and not disturbed, ACBMs do not pose a risk to building occupants. Remember that only properly trained and licensed personnel are permitted to work with asbestos containing materials.
