Subject:  Texas Department of State Health Services Launches School-Focused Asbestos Campaign and Website: Simple Asbestos Management

To the Administrator Addressed:

This summer, the Texas Department of State Health Services launched Simple Asbestos Management (SAM), a website designed to be an easy way for school administrators to learn about their responsibilities related to asbestos management. You can access the website at www.SAMforTexas.org. With SAM, you can:

• access resources to manage asbestos on your campuses
• promote the safety of students, teachers, and staff
• ensure compliance with state and federal asbestos regulations

If you have questions, please contact Roxanna B. Guerrero, asbestos programs coordinator at the Texas Department of State Health Services. You can reach her by phone at (512) 834-6787, extension 2198, or by email at Roxanna.Guerrero@dshs.state.tx.us.

Sincerely,
