Land and spoil can become contaminated with asbestos through multiple mechanisms such as, illegal burial, incorrect demolition or removal procedures, fire damage, storm damage and contamination from former asbestos waste sites.
As asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, there are also many areas in Australia where natural contamination is found. As such, work or activities that could disturb this naturally occurring asbestos pose a risk to human health.
Additionally, the illegal dumbing of asbestos is a big problem and should be reported to your local council or Environmental Protection Authority.
Soil remediation is a safe and viable process for removing soil contaminants including Friable and Non-Friable asbestos.
Through effective risk assessment and management processes, we strive to offer a range of solutions that effectively mitigate the risk of exposure to asbestos on your site, and to ensure that the site is cleared for reoccupation in the most efficient and cost productive manner.
The removal methods required will differ from site to site depending on levels of contamination; however, we apply a number of techniques, including:
Encapsulation and Capping
Asbestos Sifting / Screeding
Site decontamination ensures that all plant, equipment, materials, clothing and the surrounding environment is environmentally cleaned and clear of any asbestos or hazardous contamination.
Decontamination works are generally required in response to:
Unexpected finds during refurbishment
As a Class A Removalist, we have the experience to manage Friable and Non-Friable decontamination.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
We remove hazardous materials including lead paint and synthetic mineral fibres (SMFs).
These materials should be removed by professionals or a team who has specialist training.
This ensures safety procedures are followed and comply with industry best practices.
