EACO Vermiculite Guideline 2015

This guideline has been prepared to assist building owners, constructors, contractors, subcontractors and workers who have duties under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its Regulations to safely perform work activities involving vermiculite. Two key aspects of this document include the establishment procedures for the proper sampling and analysis of loose vermiculite and the development of work procedures for the removal of vermiculite from attics and block walls.

The guideline promotes safe work practices, the use of personal protective equipment, worker awareness and training and is based in a thorough review of the available guidance materials available through December 2014 and professional experience of the abatement industry.

We believe that this guideline will not only help employers fulfill their responsibility and due diligence under the OSHA but will assist them to better address the challenges involved with proper assessment and remediation of vermiculite in buildings.

EACO Mould Abatement Guidelines
MEMO: Asbestos – Containing Drywall Joint Filling Compound

The “EACO Mould Abatement Guideline 2004 Edition I” does not make any provisions for
