Numerous building products are asbestos containing materials (ACM). To know for certain, an expert’s opinion is needed. They might send a sample off to have it tested.
Some of the areas where this toxic building material might be located include the following:
Inspection and Testing – Collect a sample and send it to a lab
Asbestos Roofing – Roof inspection and disposal services
Fence Inspection and Removal – Safe Fencing replacement
Safety Checklist – 19 point safety checklist
It is absolutely critical to take precautions if you are going to do the asbestos removal Adelaide by yourself. It can be a very complicated and dangerous process handling ACM on your own. We strongly recommend that you hire licensed professionals. They will also dispose of the asbestos according to Government regulations.
Here is the important point: if you must work worth materials that might contain asbestos, then you need to work in such a manner that a minimal amount of small particles, dust and fibres are released from out of the asbestos materials.
When you are searching for a licensed contractor to hire, the first thing that you should do is inspect their license. One thing to be aware of is that there are two kinds of licenses:
1. The first type is an unrestricted licensed where all kinds of ACM can be removed from a property by the individual.
2. The second type is a restricted license which only allows for (non-friable) asbestos to be removed.
Non-friable asbestos refers to bonded products that don’t release fibers into the atmosphere easily. The only situation where a license isn’t required for removing non-friable asbestos is if less than 10 square metres of asbestos is being removed. However, it is strongly recommended by health officials that a licensed contractor be hired for removing any ACM.
If you have over 10 square metres of materials that need to be removed from an Adelaide property, you will need to hire a licensed contractor. If you do not have a license, it is illegal moving over 10 square metres.
For any trade professional working with potentially dangerous materials, a license is required. The license is proof that the professional has the proper experience and training for carrying out the work safely.
Whenever a Adelaide asbestos disposal company completes a job, WorkSafe must be supplied in their territory or state along with a notification form that outlines all of the details related to the removal. That provides you with added assurance that the asbestos has been removed safely and that the laws have been complied with.
