From 1 July 2013, if you're in NSW and having friable asbestos removed at your premises, you must engage a Licensed Asbestos Assessor to conduct air quality monitoring and asbestos clearance inspections and to issue asbestos clearance certificates.
We're happy to confirm that Airsafe has Licensed Asbestos Assessors available. Our senior consultants were granted the qualification by WorkCover NSW because of their acknowledged expertise and experience in dealing with asbestos.
So if you're in charge of friable asbestos removal works, call Airsafe on (02) 9555 9034 to get a quote for air quality monitoring and a clearance inspection by a Licensed Asbestos Assessor. We'll make sure you comply with your legal obligations.
What about non-friable asbestos?
The rules around removing non-friable (or "bonded") asbestos aren't as strict.
But at Airsafe, we recommend you take the same precautions as you would for friable asbestos, and engage our expert consultants for air quality monitoring and a clearance inspection.
Why's that? Because non-friable asbestos, when damaged, can easily become friable. By taking precautions, you keep your staff and contractors safe, and protect yourself against possible legal liability in the future.
Whatever kind of asbestos you're dealing with, get expert advice and help: call Airsafe on (02) 9555 9034.
