Asbestos Program Information

Asbestos Notification

State law (Connelly Act) requires employers to notify employees of known asbestos-containing construction materials located in buildings constructed prior to 1981. This notification is provided to new Stanford employees and distributed to all employees on an annual basis by means of a postcard distributed by Human Resources. The postcard contains a link to the on-line notification, which is available in both English and Spanish versions. Click on the following links to view the current notification in English or Spanish:
