What Comprises A Designated Substance Survey (DSS)?
A Designated Substance Survey is used to discover any designated substances present, along with their location, condition, and quantity. The results from a Designated Substance Survey help you take appropriate steps, ensuring more control over the level of exposure to individuals within and near the project area.
The Importance of Designated Substance Surveys
Compiling a complete list of any designated substances present within their building is a requirement of the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act for all project sites based in Leamington and throughout Ontario. The list of designated substances is also required to be provided to bidders at the tendering stage, along with being made available to any individuals within the vicinity of their Leamington / Ontario building.
If Your Leamington area building contains designated substances that are in poor condition, these substances not only pose a hazard to individuals working inside of the building, they can also harm individuals located within the immediate area. There are eleven substances within the Province of Ontario that have been ‘designated’: arsenic, benzene, ethylene oxide, lead, silica, acrylonitrile, asbestos, coke oven emissions, isocyanates, mercury, and vinyl chloride. Of these designates substances, four are most commonly found within the building materials of homes, offices, and commercial buildings in Leamington and beyond: Silica, Lead, Mercury, and Asbestos.
