Demolition waste is a mixing pot of a bunch of building materials. Some of these materials include concrete, brick, insulation, wood and glass. Oftentimes the materials end up being contaminated by things such as paint, adhesives, dirt, and in some serious, more dangerous cases — asbestos.
It is extremely important to be aware of all the materials on a site during a demolition to ensure the best in both safety & protection. Our team here at Mondo EX makes sure we navigate this process carefully to keep anyone and everyone safe, but if you would like to learn more about these materials our blog post can help you out.
Learning About Hazardous Materials
Back in the sixties and seventies, people were nowhere near as educated about the dangers of hazardous materials as they are now. Today, we are much more educated about certain types of hazardous materials and the effect they can have on one’s body. Even more, there are currently regulations in place that make sure certain procedures are in place when these instances happen to keep workers safe. Hazardous materials must be disposed properly and safely to not only protect the people working with them, but the environment at large as well.
What Types of Hazardous Materials Are There?
There are a wide variety of different hazardous materials that can be present during a demolition. Some of these materials include:
- Compressed gas
- Lead paint
- Materials containing asbestos
Why Implementing a Safe Demolition is Important
Most demolition & excavation companies will ensure that a risk assessment is completed before a project begins. This guarantees that the project can be completed in the safest way possible for both the workers & environment around them. An assessment will not only properly identify hazardous materials in the area, but also dispose of them properly making sure the site is clean of any dangerous material.
