What is Asbestos?

“Asbestos” is a fibrous material that can cause serious lung disease if a person is overexposed by inhalation. It is still present in many industrial, commercial and residential properties. Buildings built prior to 1971-72 may contain “Asbestos Containing Materials” (ACM) as an insulating or fireproofing material.

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has legislation covering the exposure to asbestos in Ontario workplaces and on construction projects where friable ACM is present.

GTA Environmental provides comprehensive asbestos management services and we use certified laboratories to analyse any air or bulk samples collected.
