The A-E shall provide a sample and test report complete with proper credentialed
signatures and statistical sampling protocols showing sectioned homogenous areas,
square footage and footnotes, identifying the logic establishing the homogenous areas.
This report will summarize the results of the asbestos surveillance and sampling program
when completed. Provide a listing of the areas, types and amounts of asbestos found,
extent of asbestos contamination, a listing of applicable federal, state and local regulations
applicable, and a description of procedures to be incorporated into the construction
documents for removal, retrofit, repair, disposal and/or encapsulation, as appropriate.
3.20 PAINTS AND OTHER CHEMICAL COATINGS; SAMPLE ANALYSIS , REMOVAL
AND DISPOSAL REPORT
3.20.1 Approved Sampling Plan
Any project involving contact, abrasion, removal, cleaning, or any disturbance of a
chemically coated surface will be accomplished only after a definitive analysis of the
coating has been made.
3.20.2 Sample Analysis
If the analysis identifies the material as one of the regulated substances such as lead,
chromates, organo tins, etc., which are suspected or are known to be a threat to health or
the environmental, proper industry accepted work procedures will be initiated.
3.20.3 Work Plan
An approved work plan prepared by a Certified Industrial Hygienist, certified in the
Comprehensive Practice of Industrial Hygiene, will be employed by the A-E to conduct
necessary sampling, utilizing a model asbestos approved protocol established in
published plans of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Such plan for sampling will
insure (with a 95% level of confidence) that the materials within a given homogenous area
are consistent with report data for the surface reported. In the case of lead for example,
direct readings using X-Ray spectroscopy florescence spectrum may be used. A nominal
sixty second test with "K" shell reading may be reported. Unverifiable readings falling
between 0.8 to 1.2 mg/cm will be tested further by obtaining a bulk sample and testing
using atomic absorption and/inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy or graphite furnace
3.20.4 Laboratory Analysis
Laboratory analysis will be by an accredited laboratory participating in the Proficiency
Analytical Testing program conducted by the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
