DSS Reports

Professional DSS reports to guide you through the construction or demolition process

What is a DSS Report?

A DSS (Designated Substance Survey) Report identifies asbestos, mould, lead and other toxic substances which may be present at your worksite and lists steps to take to protect workers and others from exposure to these dangerous chemicals and materials. DSS Reports can help you and workers avoid health and safety issues arising during on-going work.

A DSS Report from Toronto Asbestos Removal can help restart a demolition, construction or remodeling project which has recently been shut down by an inspector because it is official documentation of your due diligence in addressing potential risks.

What we look for

If you suspect that dangerous materials or chemicals may be present at the site of planned work, whether a residential or commercial property, call Toronto Asbestos Removal to prepare a DSS Report so that you know the potential hazards. We frequently find asbestos in older homes due to its common use in older construction.

A DSS Report will not only identify these hazarous materials, but also tell you their condition – an important factor. Intact asbestos is usually not a great cause for concern, but damaged, flaking asbestos can be released into the air and must be removed or at least contained. Our professional inspectors can advise you on the best course of action.

What can a DSS Report do for you?

Knowing that you have complied with all laws and regulations for both Canada and Ontario will let you proceed with your job without worry. You won’t be concerned about having your job shut down because you’ve got the workplace health and safety aspects covered.

Your DSS Report thoroughly covers the hazardous substances or materials on the property, the location and amount of each, and their condition. Using this information, you can deal with the hazard and inform workers and contractors so that they can take proper action to keep everyone safe and healthy. This will help keep you protected from liabilities and lawsuits and provide peace of mind long after the job is done.
