Asbestos Management Plan
This program addresses access to areas which may house asbestos-containing materials as well as all maintenance, repair, alteration and installation activities which may disturb such materials. In addition, the Asbestos Management Program ensures compliance with Ontario Regulation 278/05 “Designated Substance – Asbestos on Construction Projects and in Buildings and Repair Operations” and Ontario Regulation 279/05 “Designated Substance – Asbestos”
The Asbestos Management Program has been created to document and communicate the procedures to minimize potential exposure to asbestos-containing materials. The program aims to:
- Provide a safe and healthy campus environment.
- Prevent exposure to harmful levels of asbestos fibres associated with the uncontrolled or unintentional disturbance of asbestos-containing materials.
- Comply with regulatory requirements.
LAW Environmental Consultants will assist you by implementing an Asbestos Management Plan that meets full legal compliance for building owners and employers in Ontario.
We will sit down with you and discuss what health and safety objectives regarding asbestos you require, and design the Plan to meet your specific needs. We will assist you in prioritizing asbestos control objectives and help you separate the ‘wants’ from the ‘needs’ so that you can effectively resolve outstanding non-compliance issues and do so within your budget constraints.
