Abatement
 

Our Process Includes:

  1. Detailed pricing and implementation plan that addresses the scope of the abatement.
  2. Strict adherence to the
    • Site Specific Code of Practice (Advanced Remediation Operating procedures) provided for every abatement project,
    • Alberta Asbestos Abatement Guidelines,
    • OH&S Legislation, and
    • the protocols established by the environmental consultant
  3. Close liaison with you the client.
 
Precautions, important things to note
 
  • It is essential to take adequte precautions. Everybody who works with asbestos should always wear an approved face mask and gloves, along with protective clothing. Air monitoring is required while the work is taking place on Moderate and High Risk abatements.
  • Wet material thoroughly before and during the work unless such wetting creates a hazard to workers. Material should be wet but not saturated, as this may cause delamination or disintegration of the material.
  • Clean-up techniques should include vacuuming with a vacuum cleaner fiited with a HEPA filter, wet sweeping or damp mopping. (Do not use compressed air to clean up or remove dust or materials from work surfaces or clothing. Techniques which generate excessive fibre levels should be avoided).
  • Do not allow asbestos waste to accumulate or dry out before bagging.
  • Personnel, equipment and bagged asbestos waste will exit the contained work area through the specified decontamination process.
  • Environmental consultant will perform a visual inspection to verify the asbestos containing materials have been removed and the containment is clean.
  • Apply a slow drying sealant such as glue spray to its surfaces prior to dismantling the containment. (This ensures that non-visible asbestos fibres are bonded to the surfaces of the containment and cannot become airborne).
  • Complete a final air test after a minimum drying period of four hours (This will be done by the environmental consultant).
