Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will help you understand OSHA’s requirement for a pre-demolition engineering survey, including what documents to have in place, for renovation and complete demolition of buildings/structures.

Why Should You Attend:

Due to the significant number of fatalities, injuries, fires, spills/releases, and “near misses” in construction/demolition activities OSHA requires an engineering survey to be made by a “competent person”. That person may be a professional engineer (PE), certified safety professional with demolition experience, or a demolition contractor employee with adequate experience and communication/writing skills. The survey may be brief for small structures or extensive for large facilities.

Many construction projects involve the complete removal of all buildings and structures prior to constructing a building, especially in developed areas. Many commercial structures that are far from being condemned are simply demolished to replace it with a more modern and attractive building. Some buildings less than a decade old such as a convenience store, with no visible or suspected integrity issues are demolished and require at least a very brief engineering survey.

This webinar will help you understand OSHA’s requirement for a pre-demolition engineering survey for renovation and complete demolition of buildings/structures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand OSHA's subpart T.
  • Know what documents to have in place.
  • Reduce risk of unplanned collapses and injuries.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Photographs and descriptions of the structures and what to include in the descriptions.
  • Assess and quantify environmental hazards such as asbestos, lead paint, dielectric fluids transformers, capacitors, lubricants and oil filled equipment, etc. that may contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), mercury switches, battery packs, drums, tanks, laboratory supplies, etc. that are required to be removed – a Phase One Environmental Assessment Survey (ASTM) needs to be performed to identify a sampling plan
  • Phase Two Environmental Assessment that involves the sampling to characterize suspect contaminants.
  • Phase Three Environmental Assessment that involves the removal of the contaminants in preparation of the demolition.
  • Isolate and assure all power utilities or any potential energy sources are isolated or discharged as in the cases of capacitors.
  • Both demolition and construction contract bidders usually have to access the areas to take measurements and develop work plans in preparation to bid or perform work.
  • Demolition contractor employees may have to access structures to attach wire cables and make preliminary cuts in order “pull away” structures without destroying the integrity of the remaining portion of the structure. The use of mechanical means (shears and grapplers) are safest but are not always practical alone to remove portions of buildings without destroying or weakening the remaining portion to be saved.

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all construction and demolition companies/ manufacturing sites with renovations. Those that would benefit most would be:

  • Construction contractors
  • Demolition contractors
  • Engineering companies
  • Environmental remediation companies
