Protect your employees by controlling the presence of asbestos in your environment!

Did you know that in Quebec, roughly a hundred workers die each year as a result of exposure to asbestos? This is why in 2013, the CNESST put in place regulations on the identification of materials likely to contain asbestos (MLCA).

Asbestos fibres are found in various elements such as plaster walls or suspended ceiling tiles, but remain invisible to the naked eye. This is where Santinel training comes in!
