Asbestos Management


Once asbestos has been identified, it will require an experience professional to evaluate what to do next. Safety Coordination Services has over 12 years of experience managing asbestos-containing building (ACM) material assessments, project planning, abatement and other concerns.

Professional services include:
  • Risk Assessment
  • Asbestos Management Plans
  • Scope of Work/Specification Preparation
  • Abatement Air Monitoring & Site Inspections

The SCS Risk Assessment is an evaluation of the degree of hazard associated with ACMs and is based on seven factors: accessibility, condition, friability, contact with air currents, activity level, exposed surface area, type of asbestos and percentage of asbestos content.

Therefore, our Asbestos Management Plans will focus on managing existing ACMs in-place and will address the ACM inventory, training requirements, inspection frequency, emergency spill procedures, altered ACM condition procedures, notifications and labeling requirements.

Furthermore, SCS can also prepare a Scope of Work document that will outline the abatement procedures required to remove, encapsulate or enclose ACMs. If the work is to be publicly tendered, then Specifications will be developed based on Alberta Infrastructure template documents.

Finally, Safety Coordination Services will also conduct Air Monitoring & Site Inspections to evaluate the control features used to contain asbestos fibres during abatement operations in accordance with the Alberta Asbestos Abatement Manual. In addition, air sampling and analysis activities are carried out in accordance with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Method 7400 using the ‘A’ counting rules.
