Why you need a project manager for asbestos removal

Search for an asbestos removal firm in Sydney and you’ll get hundreds of results, most of them claiming to be ‘the number 1 asbestos removal company in Sydney’.

At Airsafe, we’ve worked with every residential and commercial asbestos removal contractor in NSW, and we know the reliable ones are few and far between. Here are some issues we often come across:

  • Licensing: Although all asbestos removal contractors claim to be licensed, many only hold a Class B license, which restricts them to removal of non-friable asbestos.
  • Overcharging: How much should asbestos removal cost? Without expert knowledge, you could be overcharged by thousands of dollars. We’ve seen it happen.
  • Inadequate testing and monitoring: With fixed project costs, unscrupulous asbestos removal contractors have a built-in incentive to cut corners with testing and air quality monitoring.
  • Illegal disposal: There have been many cases of illegal asbestos dumping in Sydney and NSW. This isn’t just bad for the community – it can have legal consequences for everyone involved.

You can prevent all these issues with effective project management: oversight from a trusted, independent expert to make sure you’re not getting ripped off or setting yourself up for future legal problems.

Most importantly, an expert project manager will ensure your asbestos is removed and disposed of safely, with the least possible disruption.
