  • About Us


    Bayliss Consulting has provided consulting in the field of asbestos moulds and building technology since 1986 as the management component of one of Canada's largest consultants, and since 1992 independently as an environmental consultant. Our detailed knowledge of asbestos has been gained through our involvement with some of the most complex abatement projects performed, as well as through ongoing training through rigorous courses made available by various authorities.

    Our aim is to design and assemble the necessary 'tools', such as drawings, specifications and reports, to allow facility owners and managers to deal in a sensible way with asbestos and moulds in their buildings, and to provide on-site inspection and monitoring to bring asbestos and mould management projects to a successful conclusion.

    Our long experience has enabled us to assess appropriate responses in any given facility, and to provide services which have the minimal impact on cost, building function, and user unease.

    Surveys



    Part of any asbestos management programme is the determination of type, extent and condition of asbestos-containing building components. To do this, we take representative bulk samples of suspect materials in a manner which ensures protection of building users. Samples are analyzed by Polarized Light Microscopy by a completely independent laboratory using NVLAP procedures if required. A report, including drawings using CAD if appropriate, as well as hazard assessment and recommendations, is provided.

    Moulds are dealt with in a similar manner.

    Consulting In Asbestos Removal Or Repair



    The greatest potential for asbestos fibres to become airborne is during an asbestos remedial project. Inspection by qualified individuals during this work is considered prudent by building owners in order to establish and document proper procedures during asbestos remedial work. Such documentation by a third party consultant is invaluable in the event of dispute or litigation. Proper procedures by our staff with respect to chain of custody protocol are maintained. Procedures for air monitoring are performed as regulations require.

    Type, frequency, and location of tests are determined in discussions with the building owner. All PCM, TEM and SEM tests are analyzed by appropriate techniques at qualified laboratories.

    Tape lift samples of suspect moulds are taken and analysed by an independent laboratory, as are air samples.

    Inspection And Testing During Asbestos Removal

    Training And Awareness



    A requirement of Ontario Regulation 838 is the training of key personnel as part of an asbestos management programme. We provide such training, tailoring the length and complexity to the user's needs. In addition, we provide general awareness sessions for interested individuals.

    We have had great success in the past in the presentation of informal 'emergency' awareness sessions where concerns about asbestos by building users have surfaced and require immediate attention.

    Expert Testimony



    Although required infrequently, up to date expert testimony by qualified individuals during litigation is necessary. We have been involved in this field occasionally during the past few years, and would be happy to discuss possible future availability.

    Environmental Consulting



    Asbestos is not usually dealt with in isolation. Other environmental concerns often accompany asbestos remediation, such as lead-based paints, PCBs, and general air quality. We are equipped to deal with these additional concerns as they occur, and are trained to recognize them as part of an entire project. Work on these concerns is performed as required by regulation, and by qualified personnel.
