We don’t talk a lot about asbestos, and that is probably to our detriment. The rules around asbestos contamination and abatement have nothing to do with the funding source of your project. Does your housing rehab program address asbestos contamination in procedures and practice? Does your home inspector understand the risks to the homeowner, the construction workers, your agency operations? The Stronger Together virtual conference has an important training workshop on this subject on October 8th, at 4:00 PM. This workshop is part of a Housing Rehabilitation workshop track that also includes sessions on Lead based paint, construction contract management, and design issues for housing rehab.
