Identifying asbestos

Calgary-based Astra Construction Management stresses the importance of asbestos awareness. Knowledge of asbestos can alert you to the dangers materials in your home, commercial, or workplace property pose to the health of you and your family or employees. Remember though, while knowing which materials can contain asbestos is essential to alerting a potential contamination on your property, the only way to be certain whether a suspected material contains asbestos is to have it tested by an approved laboratory.

If you suspect a material of containing asbestos fibres, contact your local District Health Board or our office. Do not collect a sample without consultation. Remember, any damage or breakage to a material containing asbestos will release asbestos fibres into the air and thus pose a risk to your health. Specialized protection and knowledge is always required for asbestos handling.

TESTING FOR ASBESTOS

There exist various methods of testing the prescence of asbestos. The type of test used will depend on the type of material being analyzed:

  • As an airborne agent
  • In bulk building materials
  • In settled dust and other non-building materials
  • In soil and sediment
  • In water and other aqueous samples
