Three Levels of Asbestos Removal (Ontario, Ottawa & Montreal)
- Type 1
- Type 2
- Type 3
The majority of asbestos removals will fall under the Type 2 or 3 category. However smaller projects, such as Asbestos Register Vent Removal, fall under the Type 1 Category as the area is 1 sqft.
Two Levels of Asbestos removal (Edmonton, Calgary & Vancouver)
- Low Risk
- High Risk
A High-Risk Asbestos Removal job requires daily air monitoring during the process which is performed by third party hygienists to prevent a conflict of interest.
Method of Asbestos Removal
- Glove Bag Removal - This is typically used around pipes and ductwork, which is executed with local containments
- Full Containment Removal - This is used on the majority of asbestos removal projects where the entire room(s) is contained and removals are complete.
Working on older buildings, regulations state that before any renovation or demolition project begins a DSS (Designated Substance Survey) must be completed. This will test for any asbestos or hazardous materials that the building could contain.
