Change in Ohio Asbestos RuleEffective on January 31, 2021, Ohio’s asbestos regulation (Ohio Asbestos rule 3745-22) has been revised. Highlights of the rule include changing of the definition “Asbestos hazard abatement activity” from 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. of friable asbestos to 3 l/ft. or 3sq/ft. of friable ACM. The definition of “Asbestos hazard abatement project” is now 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. of friable ACM.
An “Asbestos hazard abatement project” includes any such activity involving such friable ACM in an amount of 50 l/ft. or 50 sq/ft. or less if, when combined with any other reasonably related activity in terms of time or location of the activity, the total amount is in an amount greater than 50 l/ft. or 50sq/ft.
