Inventory and Removal

University of Maryland's Asbestos Inventory is online, arranged by Building Name or by Building Number. There are additional materials that might contain asbestos.

The Asbestos Abatement Inventory Correction Form must be completed by contractors immediately after removal of asbestos-containing materials in UMD facilities and submitted to Environmental Safety, Sustainability and Risk through the UMD Project Manager.

University workers or ex-workers who document that they intentionally conducted asbestos-disturbing work (removal, encapsulation, or other activities that are currently restricted to authorized Level II employees), or who were in the immediate area while such work was conducted, are eligible for enrollment into the Asbestos Medical Surveillance Program for Previous Exposure.
