Protection, protecting yourself and the public
 

People can put themselves at risk — often without realizing it if they do not take proper precautions when repairs or renovations disturb asbestos containing materials. This can occur in a number of situations:


  • Disturbing loose-fill vermiculite insulation in your attic or walls which may contain asbestos
  • Removing deteriorating roofing shingles and siding containing asbestos, or tampering with roofing felt that contains asbestos
  • Ripping away old asbestos insulation from around a hot water tank
  • Sanding or scraping vinyl asbestos floor tiles
  • Peeling up linoleum with paper backing which contains asbestos
  • Breaking apart acoustical ceiling tiles containing asbestos
  • Sanding plaster containing asbestos, or sanding or disturbing acoustical plaster that gives ceilings and walls a soft, textured look
  • Sanding or scraping older water-based asbestos coatings such as roofing compounds, spacklling, sealants, paint, putty, caulking or drywall
  • Sawing, drilling or smoothing rough edges of new or old asbestos materials


What health problems are associated with exposure to asbestos?


Health Canada states that the asbestos content of a product does not indicate its health risk.


Asbestos poses health risks only when fibres are in the air that people breathe. Asbestos fibres lodge in the lungs, causing scarring that can ultimately lead to severely impaired lung function (asbestosis) and cancers of the lungs or lung cavity.


How can I get asbestos removed?


Every abatement project, regardless of size, should be performed using trained asbestos removal professionals following government regulations and project site requirements. In addition high and moderate risk abatements require third party air monitoring and clearance testing.


It is a complex and expensive matter to remove asbestos, and should be done by an experienced contractor. When removing asbestos containing products, precautions must be taken to safeguard the workers and anybody else who may be nearby.
