Martinsburg VAMC working on asbestos clean-up

MARTINSBURG, W.Va.

Clean up of asbestos is underway on the Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center campus.

Public Affairs Specialist Lauren Winebrenner tells the Herald Mail replacement of damaged floor tiles that contain asbestos is happening now at various locations throughout the medical center building, the domiciliary and some outbuildings as part of the VA center’s asbestos operations and maintenance plan.

She says the abatement is being done within sealed, negative-pressure enclosures equipped with high-efficiency particulate-air filtration.

Mandated OSHA signs were posted before the abatement started to notify staff members, patients and visitors of the work being done.

Winebrenner says many of the buildings have asbestos-containing materials due to their age.
