When performing demolition or construction on an existing property, steps must be taken to ensure proper handling of asbestos containing materials.
Many types of building materials contain asbestos fibres including roofing materials, flooring materials, insulation, and more. Undisturbed, asbestos fibres do not pose a risk. But if your property is damaged or you are performing a remodel, it is critical to identify and safely handle asbestos containing materials. Asbestos exposure can lead to many serious health concerns including Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, Pleural Plaques, and other life threating diseases.
Work Safe BC, the Ministry of Environment, and federal, provincial, regional, and municipal governments have established strict requirements for the safe handling and disposal of asbestos containing materials.
Before work begins, properties that may have asbestos containing materials should be evaluated and tested by an asbestos abatement professional. If asbestos is present, CJB will identify the scope of the project and develop a comprehensive plan for safe and effective asbestos abatement.
Our team will ensure all asbestos containing materials at the site are contained, removed, and disposed of safely. We are fully compliant with all federal and local regulations regarding the abatement of asbestos. After the site has been remediated, clearance testing and documentation will be provided.
