- Percentage of Asbestos
All of these aforementioned factors play a role in the variety of Hazardous Material Assessments offered to suit your needs;
Visual assessment to identify location and condition of suspect materials; used for annual assessments of previously identified hazardous materials..
Standard sampling, identification and assessment survey (non-destructive); used to create management programs and identify materials that may be disturbed during renovations and/or day to day work.
Standard sampling, identification and assessment survey (destructive); used to define materials that need to be removed from a building before renovation takes place or a demolition permit can be acquired from the municipality.
The location, condition and extent of all hazardous materials and suspected hazardous materials identified during the survey are recorded in the form of an asbestos register. This register can be something as simple as a hard copy as part of a report, or as complex as an electronic format designed specifically for your site.
Inspection of properties outside normal working hours can be arranged where client’s commercial operations dictate.
Hazardous Materials Management Plans
Hazardous Materials Management Programs need to be established to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for employees, contractors and visitors by ensuring that the hazardous materials will be managed, abated, and disposed in full compliance with applicable Federal, Provincial, and local regulations. The objectives of any good program include;
- identification of hazardous materials,
- hazard communication and assessment,
- project documentation associated with hazardous material abatement
The most common Hazardous Material Management Program is an Asbestos Management Program, which includes work practices to maintain asbestos-containing material in good condition, to ensure proper cleanup of asbestos fibers previously released, prevent further release of asbestos fibers, and monitor the condition of asbestos containing material.
Intact and undisturbed asbestos materials do not pose a health risk, however improper removal can create a dangerous situation.
