Asbestos Identification
and Characterization

Let us help you to comply with the new regulations on safe asbestos management.

Ask Services ecoPlus to identify and characterize flocking (spayed asbestos), heat insulation any and any material that could contain asbestos in all buildings under your responsibility and to which the new CSST regulation on asbestos safe management applies.

All employers must inspect all buildings constructed before February 15th, 1990 for flocking and those constructed before May 20th, 1999 for heat insulation. The objective of the inspection is to check the condition of these materials. Following the inspection, its results must be entered in a register indicating the date of the inspection, where it was conducted and the condition of the material inspected.

The presence and type of asbestos in materials and products inspected, or its absence, must be registered. The date and type of work performed on materials or products containing asbestos must be recorded as well. New information must be registered immediately and the employer is responsible for always keeping the register up to date.

  • Date and result of inspection to verify if flocking or heat insulation are damaged;
  • Presence and type of asbestos, or its absence, including verifiable documentation or sampling report for material checked;
  • Date and nature of work performed on flocking and heat insulation containing asbestos.

Vermiculite
Analysis

Vermiculite is a mineral resembling mica found everywhere on the planet and used in a variety of commercial and consumer products because of its insulating and fireproof properties

Some brands of vermiculite are of concern as they contain amphibole asbestos. If your building is insulated with vermiculite, it is reasonable to suspect that it contains amphibole asbestos.

Services ecoPlus provides a complete service of vermiculite sampling and analysis. As asbestos fibres can be airborne when disturbed, specific measures for personal safety must be taken when sampling. For your own safety, we recommend that you use our services for on-site sampling.
