Safety Requirements and Hazardous Materials
The City’s Building Department has redeveloped site safety protocols to ensure the safety of its inspection staff. Effective immediately any works on buildings constructed prior to 1990 will require a hazardous materials assessment prior to a building/plumbing permit being issued. At this point there appears to be very little grey area in exemptions, but we can evaluate on a case-by-case basis for small projects or where older buildings have been previously renovated.
Our safety relies heavily on your companies safety protocols. We hope to continue working together to ensure the safety of everyone involved in renovation projects.
