Hazardous Materials Assessment and Reporting Services in Kamloops and Surrounding Areas

If you live in a older residential building, work in a older commercial building, or work in or with older industrial buildings, structures, or equipment. there is a high potential of hazardous materials being present. If damaged or disturbed these materials can cause serious health effects to individuals without notice until it is to late. WP Consulting can idenitfy these materials and provide sound recommendations on how to deal with these materials. Especially before renovations or a demolition project. 

 

Why Do You Need a Hazardous Materials Assessment?

A hazardous materials assessment helps determine if materials like asbestos, mould, lead, silica, PCBs, and mercury exist within your property. Before starting a project, it is essential to identify potential hazards materials/substances in a building that could impact renovation or demolition projects. British Columbia Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and Guidelines (BC OH&S), legislate that hazardous materials that exist within a workspace should be identified and adequately controlled. Testing for materials such as asbestos and lead at the beginning of your project can save you precious time, money and ensure your well being and health.

Our Hazardous Materials Assessments

WP Consulting works with its clients to ensure that they are informed of the legal requirements. To make it an exhaustive process, we perform:

  • On-site surveys

​Our hazardous material surveys are conducted by a current certified Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) Building Inspector. The sample collection is conducted in a way that ensures full representation of the client's designated project areas while performed methodologically in accordance with British Columbia Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and Guidelines (BC OH&S). 


Costs often depend on the nature of the survey needed for a particular site. Complications like multiple renovations over the years, often in older homes, can make it hard to anticipate sampling costs. Renovations can include repairing older building materials with another hazardous substance (such as patching damage to a lath and plaster wall with asbestos-containing drywall joint compound or levelling compound) or switching an old product with a newer hazardous substance (such as removing exterior wood siding and applying asbestos-containing stucco coating).
