Tim FitzGerald and Phil Bamford, Directors of Lidoran Roofing have launched Lidoran Environmental Services (LES) as the new division of the Lidoran stable. LES is launched in response to the market demand for a fast, asbestos and hazardous material remediation service.
Remediation definition: A means of counter acting or removing anything undesirable
In this day and age of global warming and environmental concerns, Lidoran Roofing is more aware about its responsibilities whether it is on a corporate or personal level. This extends to Lidoran Roofing’s daily workplace, the question being: What can we do to ensure a safe, happy environmentally sound, hazard free, working area?
The top four dangers, unacceptable according to NSW legislation laws are:
Asbestos Cement Sheeting and Fibres- used extensively during the 1950's, 1960's and early 1970's for insulation, structural members - popular for its thermal energy conservation.
Lead paint- Most buildings built before 1970 contain lead paint, some paints contained up to 50% lead. It was used as a drying agent, a colouring and to protect iron from rusting.
PCB's (Polychlorinated biphenyls) - the most common use of PCB's is in the common fluorescent light fittings. Prolonged exposure to PCB can cause problems including cancerous growth, nervous disorders, skin irritations, liver and pregnancy problems
SMF (synthetic mineral fibres) - Mineral wool, glass and ceramic fibres have been used over the years for their thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Studies suggest that exposure to these materials can cause an increased risk in lung cancer.
Phil Archer is acting as operations manager and with his team will provide a one stop remediation shop.
