Asbestos Work Permit System for Short-Term Workers/Vendors

Considerable interest has been shown in IDEAL’s custom-designed asbestos work permit system for short-term workers/vendors. We took the time to carefully design our system because we have witnessed first-hand the struggles schools have implementing an accurate and reliable system. Many schools are pleased with our system’s simple design and ease of use.


A work permit system is used to help avoid inadvertent disturbance of asbestos. It is a required part of your asbestos program, yet it is often overlooked and absent from management plans.


Why is a work permit system important?

Did you know, if a vendor disturbs asbestos containing material in your school, one of the first things IDPH asks for is the work permit issued to the vendor? Illegal disturbance of asbestos can cause cleanup costs which can exceed $100,000 with the possibility of additional fines and penalties.

Don’t let this happen to YOU!


Work permits are your friend!

Friends are there for you when you need help. Let our thoughtfully designed work permit system be your newest friend!
