The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority provides annual notification to our employees, tenants and contractors of the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) and Lead Based Paint (LBP) in Authority Operated Facilities (AOFs). Various consultants have been retained by the Airport Authority to provide surveys of ACMs and LBP in our AOFs. The assessments are conducted annually by the Airport Authority’s certified asbestos consultant to comply with local, state and federal asbestos notification requirements.

ACMs generally do not pose a health threat unless the asbestos fibers are disturbed, become airborne and are inhaled. The job functions of most employees, tenants and contractors do not require contact with the ACMs; however, it is important to determine, before work is conducted in an AOF, if the material contains asbestos. The attached document identifies where known asbestos materials are located.

In the event that asbestos is identified in your building, it is important to adhere to the following recommendations:

1. Do not touch or handle ACMs
2. Do not drill, cut or damage ACMs
3. Immediately report any damaged ACM to the appropriate supervisor.

For more information regarding potential health risks, general procedures and handling restrictions, contact Rick Adcock, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, Environmental Affairs Department, at 619-400-2792.
