Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Assessments

hazardous1Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Assessments are becoming increasing common as old buildings and structures are either demolished or redeveloped. Galt Environmental has extensive experience in conducting these assessments to ensure our clients meet their legal responsibilities in protecting the health of their workers and that any hazardous materials are removed safely.

Asbestos and hazardous materials assessments will often include the following tasks:

  • Ascertain the building age and history (i.e. refurbishments)
  • Review relevant documentation including previous audit reports, abatement records, architectural and engineering drawings.
  • Undertake a visual inspection of accessible and representative asbestos and other hazardous materials.
  • Collect and analyse materials suspected of containing asbestos.
  • Prepare a report summarising our key findings and recommendations, including a detailed asbestos register listing positively identified, or suspected, locations of asbestos and other hazardous materials.
  • Conduct regular reviews of the register of asbestos containing materials to determine if the risk status has changed, or if any asbestos has been disturbed or removed.
  • Provide recommendations for appropriate precautions that should be undertaken during demolition and construction works.
