| Standard Number:||1910.1001(f)(3)|
(1) The spray can/solvent system shall be used to first wet the brake and clutch parts. Then, the brake and clutch parts shall be wiped clean with a cloth.In those cases where removal of the brake drum is difficult, the wetting of the brake parts required under item (1) of the work practices must be performed before the drum is removed. Otherwise, excessive exposure to asbestos may occur during the removal of the brake drum. If it is not possible to thoroughly wet the brake parts with solvent before performing a difficult brake drum removal, then the spray can/solvent system is not an acceptable method for that particular job.
(2) The cloth shall be placed in an impermeable, properly labelled container and then properly disposed of, or the cloth shall be laundered in a way that prevents the release of asbestos fibers in excess of 0.1 fibers per cubic centimeter of air.
(3) Any spills of solvent or any asbestos-containing waste material shall be cleaned up immediately.
