Asbestos & Lead
Last Updated: 02/28/2018
The Department of Safety and Risk Management is responsible for assuring a safe workplace at Cal Maritime. While it is true there are some buildings on campus with building materials containing asbestos and lead, these materials do not pose a hazard unless they are disturbed. SRM maintains the Campus Asbestos Program, and works closely with Faciltiies on sampling records and to assure staff use proper work practices when working with asbestos containing materials.
If you think you have an asbestos or lead disturbance or release, leave the area immediately (evacuate others from the immediate area well), and shut the door. Contact your supervisor and then contact Facilities 707-654-1120 during business hours. If no one is available for a 24 hour response, call University Police at 707-654-1176 Please do not leave a voice message, continue to call until you reach a live person to report the incident. Do not return to the area until permitted by Facilities, the Police and or the Department of Safety and Risk Management.
