Managers of industrial plants and other types of structures may need to supplement the information with additional specialized guidance. The document gives building owners, managers, workers, and other key building staff basic information on how to develop and carry out high-quality operations and maintenance programs for managing asbestos in place to safeguard the health of all building occupants. An operations and maintenance program can be defined as a formulated plan of training, cleaning, work practices, and surveillance to maintain asbestos-containing materials in good condition.
