Whether you manage a large property portfolio or you require assistance during a home renovation, an Asbestos Check with Safe Environments provides cost effective and timely solutions through:
Asbestos Check asbestos consultants will review the relevant asbestos legislation required to comply with your OHS obligations and undertake an inspection of the building. The asbestos inspection provides identification of asbestos containing materials (ACM), generation of asbestos register and a report meeting local government requirements.
Asbestos Check conducts asbestos testing to confirm and identify the type of asbestos within a material. Either send us the material for testing, or we will collect the sample for you. Onsite asbestos air monitoring provides quantitative asbestos analysis to test if there are respirable asbestos fibres in the air.
Asbestos Check provides a comprehensive risk assessment based on the Health and Safety Executive material assessment and priority assessment algorithms. Quanatative risk assessments are conducted by asbestos air testing.
Asbestos Check provides action plans that are formulated to provide sound advice to minimise asbestos health risks. Control measures include asbestos awareness training, labelling asbestos materials, annual asbestos audits, developing safe systems of work and contractor management.
Asbestos Check can engage asbestos removal companies on your behalf. This will save you time, money and effort involved with the complexity of asbestos removal by obtaining quotes, quality assuring removal contractors work, licenses, insurances and procedures. Asbestos Check can provide Reassurance and Clearance Air testing after removal for safe re-occupation of properties.
The ultimate goal is for all workplaces to be free of asbestos containing materials; however this is not reasonably practicable in most situations. An Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) clearly defines the procedures and responsibilities of those who have control of the potential asbestos hazard in the workplace and provides periodic asbestos inspections, asbestos air monitoring and asbestos risk assessments.
The provision of emergency procedures is essential if you have asbestos within a building during the event of asbestos material being damaged or in the event of a fire. Asbestos Check will assist you during the first critical stages of an emergency to contain, quantify and decontaminate, getting your business back to work.
