Cardinal Mooney High School Air Quality Better Than OSHA Standards
Thursday, 18 July 2013 15:38

            Dr. Nicholas M. Wolsonovich, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Youngstown, announced that as a result of Bishop Murry’s willingness to reconsider his decision regarding the location of Cardinal Mooney High School, there has been much speculation about the issue of the asbestos in the school.

            Within the last two weeks, the school had air quality samplings done by the EA Group of Cleveland and the results indicated that the air quality was much better than the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires.

            Dr. Wolsonovich noted that all buildings constructed at the time Mooney was built contain asbestos. This asbestos can be safely contained and properly maintained by following the abatement and encapsulation procedures required by federal and state law.

The school is addressing any and all the asbestos issues in the building using professional, certified contractors.

            Dr. Wolsonovich stated that the building will be ready for students and faculty for the opening of the school year.
