About Us

A.C.M. Environmental Corporation (ACM) was formed in 1989 when the principals of the company identified a specific need for actual Industry based experience in the field of consulting and project management for asbestos abatement and other environmental projects. Possessing over 13 years of previous experience completing environmental projects, it was a natural progression for the principals of ACM to provide the much needed expertise for the environmental consulting and project management sector.

Since 1989, ACM Environmental has been involved with WorkSafeBC (WSBC) and other regulatory agencies and organizations assisting in the development of standards and training programs to all levels of the environmental industry. Our President – Mr. Jari Saarela, has been involved with WSBC since 1987 in developing the initial Standards & Training Manuals for the Asbestos Abatement Industry. Since then, ACM has acquired training to have the first Certified Lead Project Supervisor, Lead Project Designer, and Lead Risk Assessor in BC. ACM was a key member of the Industry Focus Group with WSBC in developing the Lead Containing Paints and Coatings publication for use as a guideline to increase worker safety. Key elements of this publication are currently being promulgated into the WorkSafeBC OH&S Regulation. ACM was also a member of the Regulatory Liaison Committee and the Industry Focus Group with the WSBC involved in developing a standardized risk classification matrix for the new WSBC OH&S Guidelines for the asbestos abatement industry. ACM continues to work closely with WSBC in developing regulations and Guidelines for worker safety in the Hazardous Materials Industry in BC.
