Only a fraction of the Marco Polo building has been surveyed for asbestos, with the focus so far on the fire-hurt areas.
This is according to a work plot filed with the state Department of Health that Always Investigating has obtained.
Among the steps being taken by the building’s contractor now:
- An asbestos project monitor collecting air samples and doing more inspections,
- A decontamination chamber, where workers must place all protective equipment and shower before leaving, and
- Asbestos warning signs at the entrances and exits of work areas.
Asbestos waste also has to be labeled and taken to an approved landfill.
Residents and firefighters have expressed concerns about improper handling of possible asbestos materials the day of and immediately after the fire.
