Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has many positive attributes which made it a popular additive to numerous building materials. Unfortunately, when asbestos fibres are disturbed through any number of activities, they can cause serious health concerns including Asbestosis, Mesothelioma, Pleural Plaques and other potentially life threatening diseases. Work Safe BC, along with the Ministry of Environment and various other federal, provincial, regional and municipal authorities have strict requirements for safely handling and dealing with asbestos containing materials. NorHaz, along with our industry partners, will help you find, identify and safely remove any type of asbestos containing or contaminated material. See Safe Removal of Asbestos
Mold and mold spores are an abundant and necessary component of nearly all environments. Unfortunately, when mold populations develop thrive in indoor environments or other unwanted areas, there are potential health risks. Our team at NorHaz includes Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) who employ industry leading procedures and tools to safely remediate contaminated areas and restore properties and their environments to a clean and healthy state. See Mold Remediation
Lead Abatement and Removal
Lead is a heavy metal which is known to cause health issues through physical contact and vapour/dust inhalation. It is a regulated material through Work Safe BC and removal can be as simple as bagging debris for proper disposal or as robust as applying chemical-based pastes in a fully enclosed and sealed environment. NorHaz has both the skill set and knowledge to safely remove lead based products in a timely and cost-effective manner. See Lead Abatement
Grow-op/Drug Lab clean-up
A building which has had a grow-op setup and running within, whether legal or illegal, can end up being severely contaminated from mold, chemicals, and general debris. Safely handling and removing those materials is something NorHaz’s team has been successfully carrying out for a number of years. We will work with industry partners to leave properties successfully remediated, properly documented, and ready for repairs/renovation/resale so all future occupants can be confident in the health and safety of the structure.
Trauma Scenes/Bio-Hazard Cleanup
Cleaning up biological contamination from any number of traumatic events can be potentially dangerous, stressful and time consuming. We are conscientious of the pain associated with loss of life, deliberate or accidental contamination, and other situations of that nature. NorHaz displays unparalleled professionalism and compassion when dealing trauma and biohazard clean-up while moving quickly through the process to permit use of the area again.
Through many years of experience, our team has encountered all kinds of hazardous materials, environmental/structural contamination, and other situations requiring creative solutions and sound judgement to resolve them. Our specialized equipment, access to resources, and general knowledge of safe working procedures in a variety of situations give us confidence to tackle almost any project of any size.
