The Asbestos Management Program


The University of Manitoba commissioned Pinchin Environmental Ltd. to assist in the development of the Asbestos Management Program (AMP) document in consultation with its Safety & Health Committee so as to ensure a safe workplace is maintained for all employees, students, the visiting public, maintenance or renovation workers.
A special AMP Review Committee was established to aid in the development of this document, including representatives of the Environmental Health and Safety Office, Physical Plant, Information Services & Technology, CAW, UMFA, AESES and CUPE. The AMP was reviewed and adopted in November 2002 by the University Workplace Health and Safety Advisory Committee. It is considered to be a 'living document' that will be modified and improved as is required to maintain a safe and healthy working environment at the University.
