Getex recently completed monitoring of a large scale hazardous materials removal project underway out of hours in a highly sensitive setting (a commercial retail store).
Project activities were carefully managed in close consultation with the client and the specialist hazardous materials contractor, and implemented to ensure that no disturbance to normal operations on site occurred and that customers were not placed in danger or inconvenienced.
Of more concern at all times during the project was helping the retailer to protect public health, ensuring the safety of employees, contractors and visitors.
All removal works were undertaken by the specialist hazardous materials contractor in accordance with the relevant Australian Codes of Practice.
A “Control” air monitoring program was put in place by Getex and all air monitoring results obtained throughout the project were below the applicable Australian hazardous materials guidelines.
