What Is a DSS Report in Toronto and Why Do You Need It?

If your demolition, construction, or remodeling project has recently been shut down by an inspector, and you need a DSS Report, our Toronto Asbestos Removal can help. DSS reports identify toxic materials that are present in your property and could risk the health and safety of workers while on the job site. Extensive research has shown that exposure to high levels of substances such as asbestos, lead and PCBs are linked to many serious health conditions. Knowing what to look for helps you undergo the necessary precautions in order to prevent any such health risks. This is why a DSS Report is vital to your operation. It is official documentation that all steps have been taken to protect both your employees and the inhabitants of the home or office.

Substances To Be Aware Of

It is important to know exactly what substances in your residential or commercial property are potential hazards. Keep in mind that materials such as asbestos are common in homes and at one time were standard construction material. So the issue is not just the presence of the substances, but also their condition. If you have asbestos in your building that is in good shape and perfectly in tact, then there’s no cause for alarm. Asbestos that is damaged or flaking, however, goes airborne and contaminates your interior. In this case it may need to be contained, repaired, or removed all together. A professional inspector will be able to tell you the most appropriate action to take. Some substances to look for are as follows:

  • Asbestos
  • Lead
  • Benzene
  • PCBs
  • Acrylonitrile
  • Mercury Coke Oven Emissions
  • Silica
  • Arsenic
  • Isocyanates
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Vinyl Chloride

The Benefits of a DSS Report

The most obvious benefit to a DSS Report is that it confirms that you are following all Canadian and Ontario regulations and laws, and keeps your operation from being shut down. You get a complete report of which substances are inside the property, their levels, and their current condition. The reports pinpoint the exact location and extent of the problem helping you plan a proper course of action for removal of the toxic materials. You can pass on the information to contractors about the risk levels and potential health risks, if any. You will eliminate any unnecessary liabilities and lawsuits surrounding exposure to this health hazard.
