Federal Asbestos Regulation Changes

Course Type: Complimentary Session
Course Length: 2 hrs
Province:
Location:
Price: 0.00


Seminar Overview

The Government of Canada amended the Canada Labour Code and resulting Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in regard to asbestos (Part X). The new provisions include a lowering of the allowable limit to airborne asbestos, increased air monitoring requirements, and an asbestos exposure management program.

Given the lack of federal guidance in the past, those of you that currently follow the local provincial regulations on asbestos will feel minimal impact from these new regulations. For those of you that often find yourselves on a work site under federal jurisdiction you now have an obligation to comply with these new changes. Work sites or sectors under federal jurisdiction include banking, telecommunications, broadcasting, road transportation, shipping, grain elevators, feed and seed mills, marine, rail, aviation, Crown Corporations and federal public administration.

  • Project Managers
  • Building Operators
  • Health and Safety Professionals
  • Any individuals who are a stakeholder in federally operated site such as banking, telecommunications, broadcasting, road transportation, shipping, grain elevators, feed and seed mills, marine, rail, aviation, Crown Corporations and federal public administration.
