Ontario Asbestos Regulations:
Ontario produced a Guide to the Regulation Respecting Asbestos on Construction Projects and in Buildings and Repair Operations issued in 2007.
It helps to understand some of the regulations in the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The guide’s content includes, but is not limited to:
- Asbestos containing material (ACM)
- Regulations on spraying materials that contain asbestos
- Informing workers of ACM found in a building where they work
- Close proximity is considered to be work in such that ACM may be disturbed during the work.
- An appropriate asbestos management program is in place¹
