If your building was constructed pre-1990 it is highly likely to contain asbestos in some form.
Industrial settings of all sizes, design and construction pose multiple challenges in terms of asbestos contamination. Industrial sites are often extremely complex in terms of contamination. Asbestos can be present not only in beams and columns, laggings, roofing, insulation, flanges and cladding but right through to soil in the surrounding area. Asbestos was frequently disposed of under concrete paths and carparks only to be discovered when major works occur on the site.
Undertaking a full site survey will establish the extent of contamination. By obtaining a full picture of the level of contamination at the start better able to project manage the remediation.
We are committed to working in partnership with other industry professionals, other contractors, and government departments in order to provide the best solution for your project.
With $10m public liability insurance, we work alongside business partners and clients in meeting our mutual responsibilities under the new Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 and the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016. With the introduction of new industry-wide standards in April 2016, employers are required to take all practicable steps to have any substance thought to be asbestos appropriately tested and made safe. It is the responsibility of the person responsible for the site to be fully aware of their responsibilities to their tenants and employees.
