How do I find a Pro to Manage Asbestos Safely?
WorkSafeBC’s brochure for homeowners (linked below) will provide you with information on where to look for a reputable contractor and questions that you should ask every contractor that you consider hiring. (As an example, a reputable company will have a Hazardous Waste Generator number and a Waste Manifest number). Environmental companies that deal with hazardous waste material may also be able to provide a listing of reputable contractors. Remember to ensure that you receive current information as a company that was considered reputable a few years ago may no longer be so. Do not hire a regular carpenter or renovation company to deal with asbestos material as you not only put your life in danger, you also put their lives in danger.
