Asbestos Management Program
Asbestos Management Program

The Asbestos Management Program (AMP) provides information and procedures for Asbestos Management in buildings and schools owned by the Keewatin Patricia District School Board (KPDSB). It applies to all categories of property with the exception of vacant lands. The AMP applies to all KPDSB staff, as well as all service providers and contractors performing work in KPDSB facilities.

The AMP outlines the responsibilities of KPDSB staff in their roles as the Owner of buildings containing asbestos-containing materials (ACMs), as occupants of a building with ACM and outlines requirements for KPDSB personnel involved in acquisition of property which may contain ACM.

The AMP is a management system to control disturbance of ACMs during demolition, renovation, alteration, maintenance, repair or other activities.

The AMP incorporates the following elements:

  • Asbestos Assessments and Reassessments. These documents are part of the AMP and can be found in the Facilities Manager’s Office (Kim Carlson).
  • Regulatory Requirements and KPDSB Procedures.
  • Roles and Responsibilities.
  • Notifications.
  • Training Requirements.
  • Emergency Reaction and Procedures.
  • Work Practices (Type 1, 2 and Glove Bag work).
  • Record Keeping.
  • Contractor Requirements.
