What Does a Designated Substance Survey (DSS) Provide?
A Designated Substance Survey helps to identify the presence of designated substances, along with their quantity, condition, and location. A Designated Substance Survey allows you to ensure the required steps are taken to ensure you have control over the level of exposure to individuals within and near the project area.
In-Depth Designated Substance Survey Results
Project based sites in London and throughout Ontario are required by the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act to ensure a list of designated substances present within their building in London, Ontario is compiled. This designated substances list is also required to be presented to any bidders at the tendering stage, as well as made available to any individuals located within the area.
What Happens After the Survey is Completed?
If designated substances within your London building are in poor condition or require removal, they may cause harm to individuals working throughout the building, and even individuals located within the immediate area of the building. Within the Province of Ontario, there are eleven substances that have been ‘designated’, acrylonitrile, asbestos, coke oven emissions, isocyanates, mercury, vinyl chloride, arsenic, benzene, ethylene oxide, lead, and silica. Four of these designated substances are most commonly found within the building materials used in homes, offices, and commercial buildings in London: Asbestos, Lead, Mercury, and Silica.
