Our Approach
Every client’s needs are unique due to the varying industries, types of facilities, client specializations, and regulatory requirements which Bureau Veritas encounters.  Our approach for addressing all of these issues and providing a client-specific implementation can be briefly described as follows:

• Evaluation of occupational hazards

Facilities are assessed to determine the best approach to meet the regulatory requirements related to the client’s industry, workplace characteristics, and potential exposures. Based on this information, a client-specific strategy is devised and put into motion. 

• Implementation

The implementation utilizes Bureau Veritas’ expertise in OSHA, ANSI, and other industry standards to utilize Industrial Hygiene procedures and policies that achieve a safe workplace with minimal cost and time investments, and long-term strategies are put into place to ensure compliance and a safe work environment into the future.

• Reporting

Reporting is customized based on the type of strategies being put in place, and client characteristics, such as number of facilities, duration of project, and long-term goals.  Written reports compare the assessment results with regulatory requirements to provide a frame of reference, and in cases of large projects, reports can be provided to clients in a searchable database to allow viewing of exposure results by facility type, location, etc.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • What buildings are affected by asbestos?

    Potentially all buildings, no matter what type of business is carried out in them. Areas often affected include the common areas of residential rented properties, such as halls, stair wells, lift shafts and roof spaces.

  • What are the health effects of asbestos exposure?

    Exposure to asbestos may result in a potential health risk because persons breathing the air may breathe in asbestos fibers. Continued exposure can increase the amount of fibers that remain in the lung. Asbestos workers have increased chances of getting two principal types of cancer: cancer of the lung tissue itself and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin membrane that surrounds the lung and other internal organs.
