Asbestos Building Inspections, Assessments, and Testing
Building owners must be aware of asbestos-containing materials resident in the buildings they own. This is a requirement of both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
To determine the presence or absence of asbestos in construction materials, a building inspection must be performed. Samples are taken and subjected to laboratory analysis. This is required for the ongoing operation of the building as well as prior to renovation or demolition. Moreover, certain institutions, such as school buildings, are subject to additional requirements for their operation, renovation, or demolition.
