Asbestos Analytical Services


microscopeBefore any renovation or demolition work WorkSafeBC requires that samples of materials which may contain asbestos and may be impacted by the proposed work must be collected by a qualified person and analysed by a qualified laboratory.

During the course of many asbestos abatement projects WorkSafeBC requires that the air must be sampled to verify that workers are adequately protected and that the work is not impacting air quality in adjacent workspaces. Some authorities may require additional testing to verify their staff safety in addition to the minimum requirements of WorkSafeBC.
