What Prompts A Designated Substance Survey (DSS)?
A Designated Substance Survey is used to identify present designated substances while detailing their quantity, condition, and even location. A Designated Substance Survey gives you the information required to take the required steps in controlling exposure levels for individuals within and around the project area.
Designated Substance Survey Education
The Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that Amherstburg and any Ontario based project sites work to ensure a full list of present designated substances is compiled regarding their Amherstburg / Ontario building. This complete list of present designated substances must be provided to bidders at the tendering stage, and made easily accessible for individuals found within the vicinity.
If there are designated substances found in your Amherstburg building that are in poor condition, individuals located in the immediate area and those performing work inside of the business can face harmful exposure. Currently, eleven substances have been ‘designated’ in the Province of Ontario, arsenic, silica, asbestos, mercury, benzene, lead, acrylonitrile, vinyl chloride, coke oven emissions, isocyanates, and ethylene oxide. Importantly, the most commonly found designated substances within the building materials used in homes, offices, and commercial buildings in Amherstburg are: Lead, Asbestos, Mercury, and Silica.
