Are you aware of the new regulation related to asbestos management in buildings?
By Michel Millmore P.T., CESA,
In June 2013, modifications were made to the Regulation Respecting Occupational Health and Safety. These modifications gave rise to new obligations for all employers whose personnel could be exposed to materials likely to contain asbestos. After a two-year grace period, the new obligations are in force since June 2015. The new regulation will certainly have a significant impact on claims management that often involve materials containing asbestos such as plaster wall stripping following water damage or renovation work after a fire.
