Ontario Regulation 278/05, “Designated Substance - Asbestos on Construction Projects and in Buildings and Repair Operations” governs the responsibilities of building owners, employers, constructors and workers pertaining to asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Highlights of this regulation include the following:

  • Bulk sampling and analytical requirements for the determination of ACM
  • Requirements for the owner building to have an asbestos survey of the building conducted to identify the location, friability and type of ACM
  • Requirements to maintain the asbestos survey and update it at least yearly
  • Specific measures and procedures (i.e., Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 operations) for the removal of ACM based on material friability and quantity
  • Requirements and specific procedures for clearance air testing for most Type 3 operations
  • Instruction and training requirements for workers involved in the removal of ACM, with specific training approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MCTU) required for every worker/supervisor involved in a Type 3 operation

Safetech is well versed with the requirements and nuances of Ontario Regulation 278/05. Let us help you with the identification, management and remediation of asbestos-containing materials at your facility.
