Annual Asbestos Notification


December 07, 2016

UC DAVIS: Office of the Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer

December 6, 2016

California Health and Safety Code Section 25915 requires that all UC Davis employees be notified annually of the presence of asbestos in campus buildings constructed prior to 1979.  Please post this notice in an area(s) accessible to all employees.

Building occupants should be aware that asbestos might be found in the following materials:

  • Acoustical Panels
  • Asphalt Floor Tiles
  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Chalkboards
  • Fire Proofing
  • Fume Hood Insulation 
  • Glazing Compound
  • Gypsum Board Joint Compound
  • Laboratory Bench Tops
  • Linoleum
  • Oven Gaskets
  • Plaster
  • Stucco
  • Textured Paints
  • Transite Shingles
  • Vinyl Asbestos Tiles
  • Vinyl Asbestos Tile Mastic

It is important to note that the presence of asbestos does not mean you have been exposed.  Exposure results when friable asbestos particles are inhaled or ingested.  Asbestos becomes friable when material containing asbestos is drilled, sanded or disturbed by remodeling or demolition work.  Intact, bonded, sealed or undisturbed asbestos does not pose a hazard.  Please refer to EH&S SafetyNet #84 at: for additional information.
For specifics about your building, please contact the Facilities Management Customer Information Center at or (530) 752-1655.
