Asbestos siding or roofing handling regulations: here we provide OSHA and other asbestos regulations regarding handling of asbestos-containing-materials (ACM) such as asbestos cement siding and asbestos cement roofing or asbestos-containing shingles.

This document series assists building buyers, owners or inspectors who need to identify asbestos materials (or probable-asbestos) in buildings by simple visual inspection. In the website sections listed below, we provide photographs and descriptive text of asbestos insulation and other asbestos-containing products to permit identification of definite, probable, or possible asbestos materials in buildings.

Where to find OSHA Regulations for roof demolition where asbestos containing roofing materials ACRM are present may also pertain to wall siding demolition

See ASBESTOS MATERIAL REGULATIONS and also see ASBESTOS REGULATION Update that address the handling of asbestos containing building materials, including ACM (asbestos containing materials), PACM (presumed asbestos containing materials), SACM (suspect asbestos containing materials), and ACRM (asbestos containing roofing materials).

According to NRCA, the National Roofing Contractors' Association, their studies up to February 1992 had not found a single roofing job at which the permissible exposure limits (PELs) for asbestos fibers were exceeded, and NRCA reported that in some cases no fiber release was detected.

We note that the association would have been referring only to asphalt-based roofing materials, not jobs involving the demolition of other ACRM such as cement-asbestos roof shingles (or "asbestos roof tiles" as some consumers refer to them) which might produce different statistics.

At ASBESTOS ROOF MATERIALS we discuss environmental issues surrounding disposal of fiber cement roofing products that contain asbestos, including a photo guide to recognizing asbestos fiber cement products, Environmental Issues With Cement Asbestos Roof Shingles, Asphalt-asbestos paints and sealants, and OSHA Regulation of roof demolition where asbestos containing roofing materials ACRM are present.
