The management of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within facilities and workplaces is a regulatory compliance issue that can also impact health, safety, production, and the environment. The unexpected discovery of asbestos, either by accidental disturbance or during a renovation or demolition, can dramatically impact schedule, production, and ultimately the bottom line.
DST has extensive experience in assisting employers, building owners, project managers, prime consultants, and businesses with practical solutions to asbestos management. Such practical solutions weigh the applicable regulatory compliance requirements with the realities of business operations and today’s fast tracked project schedules.
