CERTIFIED LEVEL S (formerly AHERA) BUILDING INSPECTOR VANCOUVER
CERTIFIED LEVEL S (formerly AHERA) BUILDING INSPECTOR
A Level S / AHERA building inspector is a trained and accredited asbestos professional. As of 2024, the new designation of "Level S" is required for any Asbestos Surveyor working in British Columbia.
A Level S Certified (formerly AHERA) building inspector falls under the list of qualified persons who are competent to manage asbestos-related activities in the workplace. A Level S certification is required for anyone conducting surveys of any location that would be considered a "workplace" for the purpose of removing or abating asbestos when it is suspected that asbestos-containing materials may be present.
The WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety regulations (OHS20.112) states that “before work begins on the demolition or salvage of machinery, equipment, a building or a structure, or the renovation of a building or structure, all employers responsible for that work, and the owner, must ensure that a qualified person inspects the machinery, equipment, building or structure and the worksite to identify the hazardous materials if any”.
