Asbestos management

USask has an Asbestos Management Program that communicates asbestos information to campus occupants and those who are hired to work near or with asbestos containing materials. 

If you are conducting any work that may disturb areas with potential asbestos containing material, an assessment to identify asbestos containing materials is required by trained and qualified personnel prior to completing the work.  In addition, if any asbestos containing material is observed to be damaged, please report the location to Asbestos Management Program.

For any questions or concerns regarding asbestos, please contact the Asbestos Management Program.
