Hazardous Materials

OHS Logo



Do you know of potential HazMats such as asbestos, lead, mould etc. in your workplace or building? By law, if you have potential hazardous materials in your workplace, and require some kind of modification (e.g. renovation, demolition), then they must be identified and reported by a “Qualified Person.”

OHS Global can assist with you or your representatives with effectively identifying various HazMats, assessing the risk and potential impacts to adjacent workers/occupants, and design practical strategies to safely mitigate those risks to eliminate undue exposures.
