ASBESTOS

 

 Once asbestos is identified, IMPACT can provide you with the options available for safely and legally addressing your asbestos hazards. IMPACT Technology Group Inc. has extensive experience for developing detailed specifications for large projects involving the removal of any or all ACM present. This includes project management, preparation of bid specifications, and assistance in qualifying and selecting abatement contractors.

 

Building Assessments: Our building assessments of suspect asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) generally involve three phases: walkthrough inspection, collection and analysis of bulk building material samples, and development of a report on the assessment results. The walkthrough inspection includes a visual inspection of the building, particularly areas where materials suspected of having ACMs may be located. Our assessment includes an evaluation of the location, quantity, condition, accessibility, and friability of such materials. If suspect ACMs are located, IMPACT staff collect bulk samples for analysis by laboratories which are accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). IMPACTís formal client report includes assessment findings, results of laboratory analyses, and recommendations.

 

Asbestos Abatement Monitoring: Clients must sometimes undertake asbestos abatement because of renovation activities, demolition of a building, or the poor condition of ACMs. Asbestos removal activities must comply with USEPA, OSHA, state, and local regulations, and must be performed in a manner that protects building occupants from excessive exposure to asbestos fibers. IMPACT routinely provides third-party oversight to help clients comply with these regulations. IMPACT also develops specifications for asbestos abatement and performs air monitoring during abatement. IMPACT helps measure occupant exposure to asbestos by conducting air monitoring before, during, and after removal. Analyzing air samples on-site using phase contrast microscopy (PCM) provides our clients with timely analytical results to facilitate efficient abatement activities. We routinely help building owners by preparing bid packages for abatement contractors and by preparing removal specifications that comply with applicable regulations. IMPACTíS Certified Industrial Hygienist/IDPH licensed Project Designer outlines specific procedures that contractors must follow during abatement operations to ensure the safe and legal disposal of regulated materials.
