Project Management

With You Every Step of the Way

ASE Services offers the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the remediation procedure once we’ve detected health hazards. The abatement and remediation process can be daunting, but we can assume the responsibility of getting your spaces back up to code. ASE Services can help you with the comprehensive action plan related to these hazardous materials initiatives and make it all a turnkey program for you to implement.

What’s Included in Our Turnkey Project Management Services

Hazardous Materials Identification

The first stage in properly managing a hazardous materials project is determining whether asbestos, mould, lead, PCBs, and other hazardous elements exist within a home or structure. ASE Services will undertake a hazardous materials assessment to determine whether these materials are present, where they are situated, and what actions must be taken to limit exposure to these dangers.

Code of Practice & Management Plan Development

If hazardous materials are discovered in your home or facility, ASE Services may assist you in drafting a Code of Practice or Management Plan to guarantee that inhabitants or workers are not accidentally exposed to these dangers. Occupational health and safety law in Alberta requires employers to create a "Code of Practice/Management Plan" that covers your bases.

Scope of Work Creation

A documented Scope of Work specifies the parameters of your project once you've opted to remediate the hazardous pollutants. ASE Services will draft a Scope of Work - including photographs, drawings, information pertinent to contractor bidding, and written guides - detailing the items to be removed and the procedures for doing so.

Tender Package Creation

For cleanup projects broad enough to require several contractors to bid on the work, we can assist with an appropriate tender package, so each contractor can bid on your job fairly and equally. ASE Services can put up a bidding package that protects your organization from additional delays and expenditures due to contractor miscommunication and unsuitability.

Contractor Walkthrough Facilitation

Potential contract bidders can analyze the project requirements and ask us for clarification on topics included in the bidding package, as we guide them in a walkthrough. This way, all bidders understand the extent of proposed abatement services, with time-efficient opportunity for questions about scope and procedure - and whether the job’s a match for them.

Contractor Selection & Hiring

Companies interested in bidding on the project will submit a written proposal explaining their ability to execute the work outlined by the tender package. We’ll highlight critical information and supporting documents demonstrating contractor-project fit, with criteria defined by the owner of the premises and accurate cost estimates - to satisfy all elements of the project tender.

Air Monitoring & Inspection

Following the selection of a contractor and the start of the project, ASE Services will undertake daily air monitoring to ensure that hazardous contaminants are safely abated. We'll also conduct worksite inspections for staying within scope of work and correct abatement practices. Most abatement programs involve air monitoring and inspections to assure statutory compliance.

Project Close-Out & Final Clearance

ASE Services offers a comprehensive Close-Out package that provides you and others the assurance they need to re-open the facility or continue working on other projects securely - with adequate reports and clearance letters. This deliverable verifies that the hazardous pollutants have been appropriately eliminated and that the conditions are safe for employees and occupants.

Hazardous materials management is the process of identifying, handling and disposing of hazardous materials in a safe and compliant manner. Hazardous materials can include both harmful chemicals and dangerous physical objects and can pose a severe threat to public health and safety if not properly managed. An effective hazardous materials management program will consider all aspects of the hazards posed by the materials, from initial assessment through final disposal.

Some of the key elements of an effective hazardous materials management program include:

– assessing the risks posed by the hazardous materials;

– selecting appropriate storage, handling and disposal methods;

– implementing procedures to ensure compliance with regulations;

– training employees in proper handling and disposal procedures; and

– maintaining records.

Our project management service deals with an immediate hazard in the workplace. Hazardous materials management offered by ASE falls mostly under industrial hygiene assessments and worker certification courses.

The Code of Practice & Management Plan includes the following items:

– Labeling the affected building materials to alert residents or employees to hazardous pollutants in the area.

– Creating training plans for people responsible for managing and maintaining exposure control in such areas.

– Establishing protocols for communication for potential maintenance or repair-worthy incidents.

– In the case of an occurrence that requires reporting, documenting the requirements and processes for doing so.

A documented Scope of Work includes the following:

– Controlling the remission of the hazard using safe work practices

– Drawings of the site

– Photographs of the affected area(s)

If you want different contractors to compete on the abatement element of your project, we can include a thorough Scope of Work in your bidding package.
