Simple Asbestos Management for Schools
VIDEO Simple Asbestos Management 
The mission of the AHERA program is to protect students, their families, educators and staff from exposure to asbestos in schools. To prevent exposure to asbestos in school buildings, AHERA requires all public and non-profit schools inspect each school building for asbestos containing building material and prepare an asbestos management plan to prevent disturbance of asbestos. DSHS strives to carry out the AHERA mission efficiently, effectively, fairly and professionally with respect and dedication to all Texans.
Whether your school is knowledgeable about AHERA or new to the AHERA requirements, get started through the AHERA Compliance Information page.
