Safe Environments performs different asbestos testing procedures that suit individual circumstances. Although the manufacture of asbestos containing products in Australia were banned during the 1990’s, there are still many public buildings, homes and schools that were built prior to this, and still a chance that areas like this may be asbestos contaminated. Contamination of buildings can bring with it many dangerous health risks.
The following are a list of some different asbestos testing methods that Safe Environments performs:
- Asbestos Surveys - If likely hood of the whereabouts of asbestos could be, or there are many areas of concern, the property can be inspected and any area containing material that is likely to contain asbestos will be sampled and then tested
- Asbestos Sample Testing - If there exists a concern that asbestos is present in a certain material, a sample of the material in question can be delivered to the Safe Environments office for asbestos testing. Safe Environments is also able to collect samples from particular property then perform asbestos tests on it
- Asbestos Pre-Demolition Surveys – If there is a concern that asbestos is present within a property that is to be demolished, the property/s can be inspected and asbestos testing can be performed. Any area containing material that is likely to contain asbestos will be sampled and then tested at a laboratory before demolition is carried out
- Control or background atmospheric testing or clearance monitoring– Safe Environments is also able to perform testing for asbestos present within in the atmosphere
