For many years, asbestos has been used in various forms in the construction of various buildings. The aging and alteration of these buildings, as well as the development work that can be carried out there, are likely to release asbestos into the air, which represents a potential danger to residents. An analysis of materials by asbestos decontamination experts is then required for this type of construction site, and our team in Montreal, Canada offers all its expertise in this regard.
Regulation in relation to asbestos in materials
Regulations for asbestos in materials differ from province to province, but the legislation designates a single threshold beyond which a material can be considered asbestos-containing. The minimum concentration is in the order of 0.1%. It is the for example that any product or material in which a concentration of at least 0.1% is detected will have to be subject to all prescribed precautionary measures, including transport in a watertight container. The storage of products or materials identified as asbestos containing must also be done in perfectly waterproof containers. The Safety Code provides clear provisions, and only the intervention of qualified experts can carry out in-depth analyses and remove any suspicion of buildings or materials that may contain asbestos.
