As of December 31, 2003, the use of asbestos materials in Australia became forbidden in new construction applications. While the presence of existing asbestos is tolerated in certain forms, any time a structure undergoes any construction, from a straightforward remodel to some complete demolition, asbestos inspections in Cairns and all of Australia are required to be able to be in compliance with hazardous materials regulations.
Agencies specializing in asbestos inspections Cairns are charged with first determining whether asbestos is present. Risk factors must be assessed to determine the dangers posed by this hazardous material, if asbestos is, indeed, present within the structure. Risk factors are primarily based upon an evaluation of the type of asbestos detected as well as it’s placement inside the structure.
Upon completion of the asbestos evaluation, a plan of action must be devised to facilitate the safe removal of the material. Because the institution of the 2003 Asbestos Regulation, a private party or any contractor removes this material is unable to.
The asbestos removal process is relatively complex and must be accompanied by air quality testing and regulation through the removal process as well as upon completion of the job. Follow up asbestos inspections Cairns are recommended to ensure a safe environment before human occupation of the structure.
