What You Should Know About Your Asbestos Removal Contractor.

Environmental clean-up should be performed by a company that is licensed with the State of California Contractors State License Board. Companies that perform asbestos removal should have an ASB (asbestos) classification and a DOSH certification number. It is also compulsory that asbestos removal companies register with CAL/OSHA and obtain a registration number that should be offered to all prospective clients.

Further, environmental companies should maintain an adequate level of insurance. All workers who perform environmental clean-up should have proper training in order to assure that asbestos fibers are not scattered throughout the work area during removal. There are very specialized techniques that must be incorporated in order to assure a safe removal process. All workers must be covered by worker’s compensation insurance to assure that no liability is passed on to the property owner (client).
