Why you need a specialist asbestos consultant
You may be tempted to put your asbestos needs under the control of a large risk management consultancy. However, there are good reasons to hire a specialist in asbestos risk assessments.
First, asbestos is tricky. It was so widely used as a building material during the twentieth century that it can appear almost anywhere in a building. And the risks from asbestos depend entirely on the form of asbestos used, its state and the nature of any proposed building works. Only someone with years of experience with asbestos hygiene – like one of Airsafe’s asbestos consultants – truly has the knowledge to sort through the complexity and give you clear, authoritative advice.
Second, asbestos is emotive. Asbestos scares people – probably more than any other risk in the workplace. Our asbestos consultants don’t just know about asbestos; they know how to talk to people about asbestos. They offer assistance in industrial disputes caused by asbestos finds, and bring a calming voice to meetings with contractors, managers and union officials.
When entire building sites have shut down because asbestos has been found, Airsafe’s consultants get them working again, with everybody reassured that safe practices are being followed.
In short, asbestos is too complex, emotive, and serious to trust to a generalist consultant. Talk to an Airsafe specialist asbestos consultant: you get be confident that they know what they’re talking about and know what needs to be done.
