Asbestos Removal & Disposal

removal of asbestos in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central CoastAsbestos Removal

Causing asbestos to become dust is one of the most dangerous ways of increasing the risk of health risk associated with asbestos so it’s important to leave this aspect to trained professionals and that is something we specialist in. Our team are trained, qualified, insured and accredited with SafeWork NSW and we remove all asbestos according to the safely-remove-asbestos-code-of-practice-8286- NSW-ABS Asbestos

These are just some of the steps we take during asbestos removal operations:

  • ensuring an asbestos removalist supervisor is available or present when the work is being carried out
  • providing appropriate training and ensuring the asbestos removal worker has undertaken the relevant units of competencies associated with the asbestos removal
  • informing various parties about the asbestos removal and providing them with appropriate information
  • obtaining the workplace’s asbestos register
  • preparing an asbestos removal control plan
  • notifying the regulator about the work before it starts
  • displaying signs and labels in the asbestos work area
  • limiting access to the asbestos work area
  • ensuring appropriate decontamination facilities are in place
  • ensuring waste containment and disposal procedures are in place
  • ensuring clearance inspections are conducted and issuing clearance certificates
  • ensuring air monitoring is conducted, where appropriate

Asbestos Disposal

You may think that once the asbestos issue is over but the disposal is the final important step. Inexperienced Asbestos Removal Services may simply dump the material but we follow strict guidelines according to the code of conduct and take the following precautions:

  • containment of waste so as to eliminate the release of airborne asbestos fibres
  • details of any asbestos to be left onsite
  • the types of fittings and supports and whether removal and disposal of these items is part of the work specifications
  • the location and security of waste storage on site
  • the transport of waste within the site and off site
  • the location of the waste disposal site
  • ensure that the proposed location for the storage and asbestos removal work area and the surrounding area will be unoccupied for the duration of the removal
  • approvals needed from the relevant local disposal authority
  • any local disposal authority requirements that may apply to the amount and dimensions of asbestos waste.
