The government has changed the asbestos requirements. These changes will take effect June 1, 2014 and require employers, contractors and owners to:
- Identify and label asbestos containing materials (ACM) that can release asbestos fibres
- Regularly check and maintain ACM to prevent any fibre release
- Develop written control plans to prevent the release of asbestos fibre into occupied areas when maintenance, repairs, renovations or other work may disturb ACM.
