Work Stop Services

Many homes built up until 1990 used products containing asbestos for their insulation. If you plan to demolish or renovate a home built before 1990, the asbestos must be removed carefully following set procedures, or you will receive a stop work order.

Follow these guidelines below to ensure the safe detection and removal of asbestos for a pre-1990 house/building that will be demolished or renovated.

Pre-Demolition Screening

Before starting any work, contact us to perform a risk assessment and asbestos survey. We will collect representative bulk samples and have the samples analyzed by a qualified laboratory.

From there, we will prepare a report that identifies all inspection results (including drawings, plans, or specifications), risk assessment, and scope of work for the abatement of the asbestos. The report containing the inspection results is provided to the owner/employer. The inspection results must be available at the worksite whenever workers are on site.

Safe Asbestos Removal

After the inspection results are posted, you are cleared to remove the asbestos. This process must be done by a team with the experience and equipment to do so (such as Vancouver Asbestos Removal).

Remember, asbestos fibers are too small to see just by staring at the surface. A qualified expert must be on-hand when removing asbestos from buildings. Otherwise, you will face disciplinary action.

After the asbestos removal is complete, the owner or employer receives written confirmation that the asbestos specified for removal has been removed. The owner can now authorize the demolition of the house/building to proceed. Copies of inspection results and post-abatement reports must be kept on-site.

If any asbestos is found during demolition, all work must cease until a new risk assessment is done and the asbestos is safely contained or removed.

If you are dealt a stop work order during demolition or construction, contact us immediately or get a quote using the form below.
