Asbestos Program

The mission of the Asbestos Program is to protect the UNT Community and promote the physical and environmental health of the students, staff, and faculty of the University of North Texas (UNT) from asbestos exposure.  Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in many buildings and building materials on campus and does not pose a health risk when it is intact. 

To help keep your space safe and healthy, contact UNT Facilities Work Control (940)565-2700 if you need to cut, sand, grind, abrade or otherwise disturb any building materials, hang pictures, secure furniture or work in the space above the ceiling tiles.  Facilities will coordinate with the Risk Management Services Asbestos Management Planner and/or Asbestos Inspector to ensure any surfaces that may contain asbestos material will only be disturbed by trained personnel.
