Handling Hazardous Building Materials


Is your organization planning a renovation or expansion? Maybe you'd like to conduct building maintenance to prevent a future emergency? There are multiple hazards and toxins that need to be taken into consideration before starting a construction project. If hazards are not properly identified, tested and removed, they have the potential to derail a project. This webinar will show you how to handle hazardous building materials from the perspective of two environmental engineers.

Watch to:

  • Find out which hazards you need to look for, including PCBs, asbestos, and mercury
  • Learn how to properly test and measure exposure levels to various toxins
  • Obtain best practices for managing each individual hazard, including remediation techniques and waste disposal
  • Hear how other institutions successfully eliminated building hazards and kept their construction project on time and on budget
