RiskCheck’s Hazardous Materials Consulting Services Will Help You Fully Understand Your Hazmat Risks and Compliance Gaps

Ensure safety for your property occupants, tenants, workforce, and building assets with our industry-leading hazmat consulting services.

There are risks and liability considerations associated with work that involves hazardous building materials. Government and industry regulations and guidelines dictate the documentation of the location, quantity, condition, and management of hazardous building materials. They also dictate safe work procedures to repair and remove hazardous materials, as well as their storage, and transportation.

We help you manage the risk by identifying hazardous building materials and help you perform your due diligence as you navigate the legislative and certification requirements.

Hazardous Materials Consulting

You likely need consulting services if you:

  • Own property
  • Are renovating a property
  • Are buying or leasing a new property
  • Are demolishing or modifying a structure/building
  • Have never assessed your building for potentially hazardous materials such as lead, asbestos, and mould

With RiskCheck’s Hazardous Materials Consulting Services, you’ll know exactly where your risks and liabilities are on your property. Hazardous building materials can potentially be a human health concern and a significant liability to the owner and property management company, if not handled appropriately.

We’ll create a comprehensive plan to help you tackle each issue, giving you an easy-to-understand guide that will help you achieve full compliance and manage your risks and liabilities.

Do I Have Hazardous Materials?

Every building or structure should be assessed for potential hazardous building materials. Buildings may contain hazardous substances in the structure and finishes, mechanical and electrical systems, or other building systems, which require management or removal based on legislative requirements. While hazardous building materials can be a liability to your property, the most crucial risk is in the potential danger to your greatest asset – your people.

Exposure to asbestos, lead, mould, radon, and other hazardous substances potentially found on your property can lead to short and long-term adverse health effects.

Asbestos removal

Hazardous Materials We Assess For

Asbestos can be found in building materials such as ceiling tiles, drywall joint compound, fireproofing, plaster, cement pipe and panels, texture finishes, pipe and duct insulation, gaskets, caulking, and was known to be used in hundreds of building products and equipment. Asbestos causes lung damage and scarring which can lead to difficulty breathing and is a known carcinogen.

RiskCheck’s Asbestos Services:

  • Assessment for regulatory compliance
  • Asbestos Management Plans (AMP)
  • Asbestos Reassessments
  • Asbestos Awareness Training
  • Abatement Consulting Services (Specifications, Bid Tendering, Inspections)
  • Asbestos Air Monitoring Services

Mould growth requires temperatures above freezing, a nutrient source, and moisture. The potential for mould growth is especially increased if there has been recent flooding or water damage to porous building materials or stored items. A slow leak, dripping faucet, or old plumbing can cause unknown water damage you may not have noticed. Prolonged exposure to mould can cause chronic conditions like allergic reactions, and reduced lung function.

RiskCheck’s Mould Services:

  • Mould assessment and investigation
  • Project delineation for the remediation of mould-contaminated areas
  • Sampling for mould (bulk, surface, air (viable & non-viable))
  • Mould awareness training
  • Mould management plans
  • Abatement consulting services (specification, bid tendering, inspections)
  • Bacteria and sewage screen sampling

Radon is a radioactive gas that seeps into buildings from the ground below through cracks or openings in the foundation. Prolonged human exposure to high levels of radon increases the risk for the development of lung cancer. RiskCheck’s radon consultants are certified by the Canadian – National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP).

RiskCheck’s Radon Services:

  • Radon measurement sampling
  • LEED & BOMA Best Requirements
  • Development of radon management programs

Lead can be found in various materials or surfaces of your building, including on painted walls and in some rare cases, through water pipes. Lead exposure can cause anemia and kidney, brain and nervous system damage, and is a significant concern to children and pregnant women.

RiskCheck’s Lead Services:

  • Assessment, including paint and bulk material sampling
  • Abatement consulting services (specification, bid tendering, inspections)
  • Drinking water testing
  • Air monitoring services
