Asbestos Management Programs

Developing a record of asbestos-containing materials at your facility is only part of a comprehensive Asbestos Management Program (AMP).  The Ontario “asbestos regulation” (O.Reg. 278/05) also requires the implementation of a program to manage the presence of confirmed and presumed asbestos-containing building materials on a long term basis.  The intent of this requirement is to ensure these materials are managed on an on-going basis to ultimately ensure the health & safety of regular building occupants as well as that of maintenance staff and external contractors who may encounter ACMs during their daily work activities.  A well developed AMP should at a minimum include the following components:

  • Policy statement on the management of ACMs

  • Regulatory framework including requirements for reassessments

  • Definitions of commonly used industry words and terms

  • Roles and responsibilities of staff tasked to manage asbestos

  • Training requirements

  • Record keeping requirements

  • Emergency procedures to manage the release of asbestos

  • Notification requirements (internal and regulatory authorities)

OnPoint can help develop an Asbestos Management Program that is, in effect “on point” and in line with your needs based on the complexity of your facility and/or operations.  In this case, “one-size” doesn’t fit all and the AMP developed for you by OnPoint will not only meet regulatory requirements but also be clear, concise and most importantly, tailored to suit your facility’s needs.
