The APM (Asbestos Program Manager) must be knowledgeable and experienced in all asbestos disciplines, and current in all AHERA asbestos certifications (i.e. Contractor/Supervisor, Inspector, Management Planner, and Project Designer). Also the APM should be experienced in air monitoring and analysis protocols (i.e. NIOSH 582 and 7400/7402 Methods) set forth by NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health). Additionally, it is recommended that the APM be experienced in instructional training and other environmental compliance issues to provide installation or unit personnel with the appropriate required regulatory training, oversee facility maintenance personnel, and ensure facility contractors maintain federal regulatory compliance.
