Asbestos - General Information
Asbestos and asbestos containing materials were commonly used in the construction industry. A list of common building materials that contain asbestos can be found here. At the University of Manitoba, buildings built prior to the 1990's have the potential to contain asbestos. Therefore, in instances where construction, renovations, or alterations to a building are to take place, laboratory results for the particular building material(s) being impacted must be provided. In the absence of laboratory results, the Physical Plant Health and Safety Department must be consulted to perform an asbestos assessment.
