Asbestos Management Services

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber which is known for its fire retardant and insulating qualities, as well as having great tensile strength and flexibility. Some typical asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are:

  • insulation or fire proofing materials (which may be found on pipe elbows, pipe straights, boilers, water tanks, steel beams or the underside of steel roofing decks)
  • plaster and textured wall and ceiling coatings
  • drywall compound
  • caulking
  • floor and ceiling tiles as well as mastic
  • ridged construction panels

Asbestos may present a serious health hazard to humans when its fibers become airborne and are subsequently inhaled or ingested. Site owners and managers can face potential liabilities associated with the presence and/or removal of ACMs. Ontario Regulations 278/05 provides a safe set of guidelines for the management of ACMs. Site owners are required to have a ACMs survey completed if ACMs are suspected to be present on their site.

ACMs surveys and ACMs removal (removal is sometimes referred to as abatement) must only be completed by appropriately trained and qualified personnel. Improper handling of ACMs can result in the release of asbestos fibers and dangerous health conditions which could contaminate an entire building.
