Asbestos Building Inspection / Surveys

Asbestos work is the bread and butter of Westchester Environmental. Each technician has the experience and training to investigate, identify, and manage Asbestos. Surveying and sampling of Suspect Asbestos Containing Materials (SACM) are carried out by Certified Building Inspectors as per EPA Protocol.

Asbestos surveys and inspections are designed to locate asbestos-containing materials and determine if that asbestos may pose a hazard. A visual assessment is performed to determine the condition and location of suspect materials, samples are then collected for analysis by an independent laboratory.

The highest level of Quality Control is always maintained to ensure the well-being and safety of both the surveyor and occupants of the building during all stages of the asbestos survey.

Asbestos Abatement Project Design

Westchester Environmental has certified Management Planners and Engineers to design Plans and Specifications for all stages of a proposed Asbestos Abatement Project. Plans and Specifications are always compiled in compliance with current Federal, State, and Local Regulations.

Removal is not always the only option when asbestos-containing materials are identified in a building. Westchester Environmental works with property owners and managers to develop asbestos Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Programs. These help to control their liability by reducing environmental risks to employees or occupants, and plans can be tailored to meet specific safety and budget requirements of the project.

Asbestos Air Monitoring and Testing

Westchester Environmental Provides on-site air sampling and oversight of abatement contractors to ensure compliance with the appropriate regulatory requirements. For over two decades we have provided our clients with competent Asbestos Project Inspectors (API) or Asbestos Safety Technicians (AST) who make sure the projects are finished on time and in compliance. Baseline samples will be collected prior to the start of the abatement and pending a passing Final Visual Inspection of the work area, clearance samples will be taken to ensure all clearance criteria are satisfied.

Our technicians are NIOSH 582 certified to read Asbestos Air Samples via Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM) allowing us to rapidly turn around the analysis of PCM samples for the project.

Daily project activity logs, sample location maps, and sample collection data will be maintained for the duration of the project. All project documentation and the final report shall be provided at project completion.
