Alabama Asbestos : What you need to know

• Rules. Alabama’s asbestos practices are generally governed by federal law. ADEM has adopted by reference the asbestos NESHAP. Alabama does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, federal occupational safety and health standards for asbestos govern private sector workplaces in the state. There are no state or federal laws that govern workplace safety and health in public sector (state and local government agencies and school systems) workplaces in the state.

Asbestos requirements of the local regulatory agencies also follow the federal provisions.
