Exposure to asbestos is a serious health hazard. To help manage the presence of asbestos on your site, you will need expert advice and technical assistance. You can trust our experienced team to carry out an asbestos risk assessment, identify and test for asbestos and help you meet all regulatory requirements if safe removal is needed.
Our team has the track record and expertise to set your mind at ease. We use our mobile laboratories to conduct asbestos monitoring to help you identify if you do have asbestos on site. We carefully take samples from each suspect material and examine them with the aid of polarised light microscopes to determine the presence, type and quantity of asbestos.
Where necessary, our asbestos identification methods include using a transmission or scanning electron microscope to clearly distinguish asbestos from other inorganic or organic fibres. This allows us to also control the exposure to similar hazardous products such as respirable crystalline silica and other man-made mineral fibres.
To ensure you are meeting the latest legislation, we will:
- Identify materials containing asbestos in your workplace
- Provide an on-site register of asbestos materials to all employees
- Establish regular assessments and inspections of identified asbestos materials
- Label identified asbestos materials
- Implement an asbestos management plan
- Supervise asbestos removal control
- Conduct post-removal monitoring and inspections
- Issue clearance certificates
We provide a total service from site inspection and sampling to analysis and reporting. All assessments and recommendations are carried out in accordance with the relevant regulations and site requirements. Our laboratories are accredited according to the applicable national and international quality standards, and are recognised by the authorised governmental bodies.
