A type 1 Operation is defined as one that does not generate appreciable levels of airborne asbestos and generally present little hazardous to workers or bystanders. An example of this is the installation or removal of limited quantities of bound asbestos products such as vinyl asbestos floor tiles and cement products.
Type 2 Operations are small scale activities which may generate enough airborne asbestos to require protective equipment, but are short lived. Short lived activities are less than one shift for any single project. An example of this would be minor maintenance or repair work above false ceilings where sprayed asbestos fireproofing is present on beams. In accordance with guidelines issued by de Ontario Ministry of Labour, minor removal means the removal of up to nine square feet of wet friable material. For a length of pipe, minor removal must not exceed 21 linear feet, even if less than nine square feet of material is involved.
Type 3 asbestos operations are generally large scale activities which may generate significant airborne asbestos levels, may occur frequently, are of longer duration, and may pose a serious risk both to workers and to bystanders. An example of this is the major removal of friable asbestos during buildings renovations or before demolition. Major removal means the removal of more than nine square feet of wet friable materials in one shift, or the removal of more than 21 feet of linear pipe.
