Information:

Asbestos is a building material that has been used in floor tile, ceiling tile, insulation, and numerous other materials for many years.  Asbestos fibers can cause serious health effects if they are not sealed into the material that they are a part of.

Northwestern State has a done a complete inspection of campus buildings for asbestos-containing materials.  The initial inspections of buildings were done in 1993-1994 by Inspectors from the State of Louisiana.

Asbestos Management Plans are maintained on all buildings with asbestos containing materials.  Those plans are located in the Environmental Health & Safety Office. The Management Plan includes a description of asbestos containing materials in the buildings, and procedures for re-inspecting buildings.
