Why every building manager or owner needs to know what’s inside their facility’s structure, pipes and mechanical systems

Strict federal and provincial regulations demand that building managers and owners must keep up-to-date, detailed records of the exact location and condition of any material that contains— or is assumed to contain—asbestos in their facilities.
For both building occupant health and bottom-line health, a fast, simple and cost-efficient system of managing asbestos information is vital.
