Asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) can be found in hundreds of thousands of buildings. The purpose of an O&M program is to reduce the chance of exposing building workers and occupants to asbestos dust. An Operations and Maintenance (O&M) program is a combination of training, cleaning, work practice, surveillance, notification, recordkeeping, worker protection, and emergency response procedures to be followed in a building wherever ACBM might be disturbed.
