Description
Excerpt: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) inspections of five schools in Puerto Rico in 2002-2003 found widespread failure to protect children from exposure to asbestos. Dust was evident in several school buildings where stucco containing asbestos had been removed improperly: signifi-cant portions of the stucco remain-ing in classrooms was damaged and pieces of stucco were found on a desk and a floor in one classroom. It was clear that schools were not properly collect-ing asbestos-containing waste material. EPA learned that in one school, a teacher and several students had removed about 2,000 square feet of asbestos-containing vinyl floor tiles. Neither the stu-dents nor the teacher were prop-erly trained in how to do this safely and they did not wear protective gear.
