GREEN GLOBES #4.8.1 Are there any PCBs present in the building?
- No (5 points)
- N/A (5 points)
- Yes (0 points)
Until the early 1980's, PCBs were used in fluorescent lamp ballasts for interior lighting and in some high-intensity discharge (HID) ballasts for exterior lighting. There are also electrical transformers and capacitors still in operation that contain PCBs. If the building was constructed after 1980, select "N/A" and full credit will be awarded.
GREEN GLOBES #4.8.2 Are both of the following conditions met?
- There is a PCB management plan that designates responsibilities, requires inventory of all materials containing PCBs, including transformers, as well as records showing locations of major PCB-containing equipment, stipulates storage requirements, and describes a strategy for phasing out and disposing of PCB-containing equipment.
- There are procedures in place to ensure that any PCB containing materials are safely stored, regular inspection of storage sites is conducted by designated persons and spill response includes training for staff.
- Yes (5 points)
- No (0 points)
Select "Yes" only if both conditions are met.
Note: Criterion only visible if 4.8.1 is answered with "Yes"
