Determining the potential for asbestos exposure in the workplace is now a mandatory requirement for all business and building owners. Identifying the presence of any asbestos in your building or workplace is the first place to start when it comes to meeting your requirements. An asbestos survey will provide all of the appropriate information for managing your asbestos exposure risks, however not all surveys are created equal. Poorly conducted surveys or surveys that are not fit for purpose can result in heavy costs down the track. You can count on Protec Environmental Consulting to provide you with the right type of survey for your needs. Our team of qualified and experienced Surveyors will provide you with a fully customized survey that is unique to your business requirements.
Protec Environmental Consulting offers the following types of asbestos survey:
A management survey is designed to provide sufficient information to indicate the presence and location of asbestos or asbestos containing materials in a building or workplace that could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, or during any maintenance works. A good management survey may involve minor intrusive work or disturbance.
Demolition or Refurbishment Survey
Demolition or refurbishment surveys are designed to identify the location and integrity of all types of asbestos materials within a building before any work commences. These are fully intrusive surveys which may involve exposing parts of a buildings structure and should therefore only be conducted in unoccupied areas.
Buildings or workplaces that have had asbestos removed by licensed removalists must be assessed or cleared to determine they are safe for re-occupation. Clearance inspections should be conducted by a licensed and independent assessor. Environmental Consulting have a team of experienced licensed assessors who are fully trained in four-stage clearance processes which includes air monitoring and surface testing in line with the asbestos regulations.
Once asbestos has been identified or assumed in a workplace or building, the next step is to develop an Asbestos Management Plan that clearly outlines how the asbestos will be managed and monitored on an ongoing basis. A good Asbestos Management Plan should be unique to a business and not something off the shelf. Protec Environmental Consulting’s experienced team of consultants can help you develop an Asbestos Management Plan that is not only effective at managing your exposure risks, but also meets all of your requirements as a business or property owner.
