Prohibited Activities


Some activities are prohibited as it is difficult to contain the asbestos fibres released. Prohibited activities include:

  • cutting asbestos materials with a power tool, such as an angle grinder, circular saw or electric sander
  • cleaning asbestos materials, such as a roof sheeting, with a high-pressure water cleaner
  • using compressed air or abrasive-blasting asbestos materials.
