Asbestos & hazardous material surveys

According to the Work, Health and Safety Regulations 2011, any renovation or demolition work in a workplace built before December 1, 2003 now requires as Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Survey (also known as an "asbestos / hazardous materials audit", "asbestos / hazardous materials inspection", or "asbestos / hazardous materials assessment"). This includes residential unit buildings.

At Airsafe, we provide all the necessary documentation to meet these legislative requirements and start the construction process faster. We know you’re in a hurry to get started, so we respond quickly (usually we can get someone on site on the same day) and get the job done efficiently.

Our comprehensive survey identifies the following materials:

  • Asbestos
  • Lead in Paint
  • Synthetic Mineral Fibre
  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls

Our Asbestos Audit Process

A typical asbestos survey with Airsafe goes like this:

  1. Fill in our quote request form.
  2. Our consultant will examine your details and provide a quote.
  3. One of our fleet of inspection vehicles will be dispatched to your location, anywhere in Sydney.
  4. Specialist consultants will take samples for testing in our NATA-Accredited lab.
  5. The location, extent, and condition of asbestos materials is determined.

Asbestos survey reports

At the end of Airsafe's asbestos survey, you'll receive a comprehensive survey report. The survey report will contain:

  • An easy-to-read Executive Summary of key findings and recommendations
  • An outline of what the survey consisted of and the methodology used
  • General information about asbestos
  • An legally compliant Asbestos Register for the site
  • A detailed list of recommendations
  • Photographs of areas where asbestos was found, for easy identification
  • Laboratory reports showing results of asbestos testing

All asbestos survey reports are not the same

Unfortunately, we often hear stories of asbestos survey reports not being accepted by the relevant authorities because of a lack of detail or a failure to conduct sufficient testing.

Over more than 20 years, Airsafe has built a reputation within the asbestos industry. Our survey reports are accepted as definitive by WorkCover, local governments, and other authorities. 

We don't cut corners on our surveys, and because we have our own NATA accredited laboratory, we'll test as many samples as we need to until we're satisfied that we have a complete picture of your building's asbestos containing materials.

Don't take chances with something as serious as asbestos. 

Adherence To Asbestos Legislation

Asbestos Inspectors are recommended by WorkCover and approved by local councils.

Our asbestos inspection reports are produced in accordance with the requirements of the Work, Health and Safety Regulations 2011.

Because of Airsafe’s experience and reputation, our survey reports carry real weight and authority. A report from Airsafe is regarded throughout the construction industry as proof that you've carried out due diligence around hazardous building materials like asbestos.
