I just got this info from a contractor friend that does roofing.This will apply to all trades sec 20.112 a pre-1990 house/building that is to be demolished or renovated.Must have an risk assessment and asbestos survey done before conducting any work.Any thoughts on this new requirement?some

potential sources of asbestos are recessed lighting,range hoods,insulation on knob and tube wiring,outlets and switch boxs,light fixtures and main panel and fuse boxs.Canada mortgage and housing is involved with this program

Yes I have been hearing some fuss about project notices not getting to Worksafe offices before the projects started and the number of hazardous goods that were not being dealt with appropriately.

A lot of years ago I worked in an office that had spray on asbestos. I worry about that on occasion. No one wants to die from working or for that matter die at work.
There are so many layers of bureaucracy it is hard to actually get anything done too.
