Contamination of areas outside of the work area isolation barriers . Failure of filtration or rupture in the differential pressure system . Contamination of air outside the building envelop with airborne Asbestos/LBP/Hazardous Material fibers. Should any of the above occur immediately cease Asbestos/LBP/Hazardous Material abatement activities until the fault is corrected. Do not recommence work until authorized by the IH Consultant. IH Consultant may monitor airborne fiber counts in the Work Area. The purpose of this air monitoring will be to detect airborne Asbestos/LBP/Hazardous Material concentrations that may challenge the ability of the Work Area isolation procedures to protect the balance of the building or outside of the building from contamination by airborne fibers. 1.15.2 Clearance Air Monitoring Work Area Clearance: To determine if the elevated airborne fiber counts encountered during abatement operations have been reduced to an acceptable level, the IH Consultant will sample and analyze air per applicable regulations and this specification. 1.15.3 Stop Action Levels: Inside Work Area: Maintain an average airborne count in the Work Area of less than 0.10 fibers per cubic centimeter. If the fiber counts rise above this figure for any sample taken, revise work procedures to lower fiber counts. In this event, stop all work, leave pressure differential system in operation, and coordinate with the State of New Hampshire and the IH Consultant as needed. Outside Work Area: If any air sample taken outside of the Work Area exceeds the base line concentration levels, immediately and automatically stop all work except corrective action. If it is determined by the IH Consultant that the high reading was the result of a failure of Work Area isolation measures initiate the following actions: • Immediately erect new critical barriers as set forth herein to isolate the affected area from the balance of the building. Erect Critical Barriers at the next existing structural isolation of the involved space (e.g. wall, ceiling, floor). • Decontaminate the affected area in accordance with the procedures Stated herein. • Require that respiratory protection as set forth herein be worn in affected area until area is cleared for re-occupancy in accordance with the work area clearance requirements. • Leave Critical Barriers in place until completion of work and insure that the operation of the pressure differential system in the Work Area results in a flow of air from the balance of the building into the affected area. • If the exit from the clean room of the personnel decontamination unit enters the affected area, establish a decontamination facility consisting of a Shower Room and Changing Room as set forth herein at entry point to affected area. • After Certification of Visual Inspection in the Work Area remove critical barriers separating the work area from the affected area. Final air samples will be taken within the entire area. If the high reading was the result of other causes initiate corrective action as determined by the State of New Hampshire and IH Consultant. Effect on Contract Sum: Complete corrective work with no change in the Contract Sum if high airborne fiber counts were caused by Contractor's activities. The Contract Sum and schedule will be adjusted for additional work caused by high airborne fiber counts beyond the Contractor's control.

Maintain proper use of personnel protective equipment. 1.18.7 Respiratory Protection: Provide sufficient respiratory protection in accordance with applicable OSHA requirements in addition to ANSI, NIOSH, and MSHA standards. Select proper level of protection based on personnel exposure monitoring and the applicable OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits. Instruct and train each worker involved in Asbestos/LBP/Hazardous Material abatement or maintenance and repair of asbestos/lead -containing materials in proper respiratory use and require that each worker always wear a respirator, properly fitted on the face in the Work Area from the start of any operation which may cause airborne asbestos/lead fibers until the Work Area is completely decontaminated. Use respiratory protection appropriate for the fiber level encountered and as required for other toxic or oxygen-deficient situations encountered. Except to the extent that more stringent requirements are written directly into the Contract Documents, the following regulations and standards have the same force and effect (and are made a part of the Contract Documents by reference) as if copied directly into the Contract Documents, or as if published copies were bound herewith. Where there is a conflict in requirements set forth in these regulations and standards, meet the more stringent requirement.

Work involving lead-containing components, as indicated in the lead removal specification, may generate lead dust and debris, and could therefore pose a potential health hazard to both workers and other building occupants. Because lead is a cumulative and persistent toxic substance and because lead-caused health effects may result from low levels of exposure over prolonged periods of time, engineering controls and good work practices must be used to minimize employee exposure to lead. Therefore, workers must be made to realize the seriousness of non-approved procedures and their consequences. Per Bid # 2071-18 Last Updated 1/3/2017 LMR B. During the course of the LP removal or other related work, if workers or other trades-people encounter and/or disturb existing lead-containing components, then appropriate safety and worker protection measures will be taken to ensure protection from potential lead exposure. These safety measures shall include those procedures contained herein, as applicable, and any additional controls not originally necessary. Safety measures shall be in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations. Complete, and coordinate with Owner as applicable, all communication of hazards in strict accordance with 29 CFR 1926 and other applicable State and federal regulations for lead, asbestos, PCB, mercury, fluorescent light bulbs, and other anticipated hazards. The Contractor shall coordinate with the Owner and the IH Consultant to review all existing inspection records and testing results as needed. 2.5 PRODUCTS 2.5.1 PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT A.
