July 1: Fax Asbestos Notifications Will No Longer Be Accepted
As of July 1, 2013, Alberta Occupational Health and Safety will no longer accept an Asbestos Project Notification (NOP) submitted by fax. A new NOP form has been developed, which can be completed electronically and submitted by e-mail. Sec. 36 of the OHS Code requires you to submit an NOP at least 72 hours before beginning activities that may release asbestos fibres.
