Asbestos can be a worry in any older building so it is important to have an inspection done to determine if there is asbestos present in your building. If there is, the inspection will recommend if the asbestos should be removed or left alone. Here’s more information about asbestos inspections.
Asbestos inspections are inspections that are carried out by professionals such as occupational hygienists to determine is asbestos is present on any given property, and if it is, if the asbestos should be left undisturbed, or if it should be removed. Generally speaking, asbestos materials only need to be removed if they are deteriorating, but materials in good condition are generally safe to leave in situ, as long as there is no risk of them being disturbed.
The asbestos inspection will cover every accessible area in the home such as the walls, roof, underneath the floor, garages, sheds, and fences. Any material that contains asbestos will be identified and they will be assessed as to their safety. A report is provided outlining everything you need to know about asbestos and the report will also provide recommendations as to what to do about it. The inspector will also provide an Asbestos Register, which is necessary if there is asbestos on the property.
If asbestos is identified as needing to be removed, the inspector will outline this and may also be able to help you along with the removal process, such as identifying an asbestos removal professional that can help you.
When choosing an asbestos inspection professional such as an occupational hygienist, it is vital that you check that they are correctly qualified, licensed, and insured, as asbestos is a very dangerous material. Ideally, the occupational hygienist will specialise in asbestos as the reports and asbestos registers that they provide need to satisfy Workcover, the local councils, and National Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.
