Asbestos Employee Notification:

Some uses of asbestos in building products were pipe insulation, steel fireproofing, vinyl tile and mastic, ceiling tiles, plaster, duct insulation, and various other uses. Asbestos is a known carcinogen which can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and abdominal cancer. Asbestos can present a health hazard when it is crushed or pulverized and emits microscopic fibers. These tiny fibers then become airborne and find their way into your lungs causing the above-mentioned diseases.

The Fabens Independent School District (FISD) has taken action toward management of all asbestos material in the buildings. FISD has CONDUCTED an engineering survey which located most asbestos sources in these buildings. This inspection report is at your disposal in the front office. FISD has committed itself to protect occupants and employees from asbestos exposure.

If you have any questions please contact Mr. Javier Garay (915) 765-2680.
