Why Do I Need A Designated Substance Survey (DSS)?
A Designated Substance Survey is used to identify the quantity, condition, and location of all designated substances present. With the results of a Designated Substance Survey, you are better equipped to take the steps needed to control exposure levels for those within and around the project area.
Designated Substance Survey Requirements
Project sites found in Tecumseh and throughout Ontario are required by the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act to ensure a list of present designated substances is compiled within their Tecumseh / Ontario building. This designed substances list is also required to be presented to bidders throughout the tendering stage, as well as made available to individuals found within the vicinity.
When designated substances found in poor condition are located within your Tecumseh building, the substances have the ability to harm individuals working inside of the building, along with individuals found within the immediate area. With eleven substances ‘designated’ within the Province of Ontario, we track acrylonitrile, arsenic, asbestos, benzenes, coke oven emissions, ethylene oxide, isocyanates, lead, mercury, silica, and vinyl chloride. Our largest focus is on four of these designated substances which are most often found in the building materials used for homes, offices, and commercial buildings in Tecumseh: Asbestos, Mercury, Silica, and Lead.
