Hazardous Material Report

Hazardous Materials Report

Health and safety in the workplace are now a requirement in all work and project sites.

Whatever the nature of business or size of the organisation, a health and safety program is now recommended to ensure an efficient and safe working area for workers and employees. With a healthy and safe working environment, the company can promote productivity in the workplace and help save resources that would have been spent on hospitalisation and related expenses. To ensure the safety of the workplace, a health and safety program must be in place, and reports must be drafted for reporting and compliance purposes. An example of a report that will be submitted by a group involved in construction is the hazardous material report.

The identification of hazardous materials and the submission of the report is in line with the new Work Health and Safety and based on the call of the United Nations for a Harmonised Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.

What to Expect from a Hazardous Material Report and Survey?

If you obtain a hazardous material report and survey, a team will conduct an inspection of construction or buildings for materials that are considered hazardous to the health of the workers or the occupants of the building. The report will also check for the presence of hazardous materials that may have an impact on the environment. Some of the hazardous materials that may be identified in the report include:

  • Lead
  • Asbestos Containing Material or ACM
  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB’s)
  • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s)
  • Synthetic Mineral Fibres (SMF)

The identification and reporting of hazardous materials are a required due to its potential effects on human health and the environment. Asbestos is an example of a hazardous material that can compromise the health of workers. This hazardous material can cause mesothelioma and lung cancer. Lead and PCBs can affect the nervous system, and the SMF can cause complications in the upper respiratory tract and the skin.
