For example, removing building-wide asbestos is usually the landlord’s responsibility, as is the cost of replacing the locks with new, more secure hardware mandated by local codes.

If you are a commercial property owner who leases or rents, for example, a building or part of a building to a business or businesses, then you may have obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations .

For example, if an investigation revealed that the landlord (meaning the building owner) failed to notify the contractor of the presence and location of asbestos, a citation could be issued.
