Everything you need to know about finding an Asbestos Removal Expert

If you are in an older commercial building, there is the chance that asbestos is present in some of the materials used during construction. Generally, the risk is little if the materials are in good condition and not disturbed but there are some cases where removal is warranted. Here’s what you need to know about commercial asbestos removal.

Why Should Asbestos be removed?

Asbestos materials need to be removed from the building if it is in poor condition and further deteriorating, thus posing the risk that fine asbestos fibres can get into the air and potentially cause lung conditions over time (such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, or lung cancer). If there is any danger to employees, this must be rectified in order to reduce your liability down the track, and also to ensure that the workplace remains safe and productive.

Removing Asbestos in Commercial Buildings

The procedure for removing asbestos in commercial buildings is similar to residential buildings but on a larger scale. If the asbestos material is not in good, safe condition and thus needs to be removed, there are some particular steps that need to be followed. Firstly, any areas where there is dangerous, unstable asbestos should be isolated from any staff or personnel that use the building. All areas where there is asbestos should be clearly labelled. The Hazardous Materials Register should be consulted and a Risk Management Plan put together. This plan will set out the dates for removal and also the process. Removal is necessary if there is any risk to employees for their safety and also to protect your liability.

The regulations for removing asbestos depends on the type of commercial building that it is and also what state or territory you are in. A professional that is familiar with these regulations will be able to carry out the safe removal and disposal of the asbestos materials in accordance with requirements. The professional will also have all of the correct licenses, insurances, be registered with the appropriate state or territory body, and have a good working relationship with WorkCover.
