Hazardous Materials Handling

The Hazardous Materials Program is responsible for the removal, transportation, segregation, consolidation and storage of potentially hazardous materials and chemicals in compliance with state and federal regulations.

We handle a vast array of hazardous materials and specialize in dealing with asbestos, lead, mercury contaminated material, and PCB containing caulk. We accommodate a wide variety of projects. Call us to schedule a consultation. We provide multiple solutions to environmental issues and will interpret Minnesota Department of Health, Occupational Safety and Health, and Minnesota Pollution Control regulations.

Examples of our projects include:

  • Asbestos and lead training for approximately 450-500 University employees each year.
  • Air monitoring and bulk sampling for asbestos, lead, mercury, and PCB caulking to maintain required records.
  • Management services for abatement projects. Our group assists with design, budgeting, bidding and management of the environmental project.
  • Providing trained personnel for sterilization of the University's BSL-3 labs using vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP).
