When it comes to asbestos removal, selecting the right company is crucial for ensuring safety, compliance, and effectiveness. Global Asbestos Audits is a leader in managing asbestos removal projects, renowned for expertise and adherence to safety standards. This article will guide you through the essential factors to consider when choosing a company for asbestos removal.
Comprehensive Asbestos Assessment
Before any asbestos removal process, a detailed asbestos survey is imperative. Global Asbestos Audits specialises in conducting thorough assessments to determine the presence, type, and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) precisely. This initial step is critical for planning an effective asbestos removal strategy.
Hiring Licensed Asbestos Removal Professionals
The complexity and risks associated with asbestos removal necessitate the involvement of licensed professionals. Global Asbestos Audits ensures that only qualified and trained asbestos removalists, who are licensed, handle your asbestos removal tasks. Our expertise guarantees the safe and efficient handling of ACMs.
Ensuring Proper Containment Measures
Proper containment is essential to prevent the escape of asbestos fibres. Global Asbestos Audits implements stringent containment protocols, including sealed work areas, negative air pressure systems, and personal protective equipment, to ensure the safety of workers and the surrounding environment during the asbestos removal process.
Adopting Safe Handling Practices
One of the critical aspects of asbestos removal is the safe handling of ACMs. Techniques like wetting ACMs are employed to reduce the release of fibres. Global Asbestos Audits’ professionals are trained in these safe handling practices, ensuring minimal risk during the asbestos removal process.
Methodical and Careful Asbestos Removal Techniques
The removal of ACMs must be done carefully and methodically. Global Asbestos Audits uses appropriate tools and equipment to ensure ACMs are disturbed as little as possible during removal, reducing the risk of fibre release.
Proper Disposal of Asbestos Waste
After removal, ACMs must be disposed of safely. Global Asbestos Audits follows strict procedures for waste disposal, including double-bagging and labelling ACMs and disposing of them at authorised facilities. This ensures environmental safety and compliance with regulatory standards.
Continuous Asbestos Air Monitoring
Throughout the asbestos removal process, air quality is a significant concern. Global Asbestos Audits conducts continuous air monitoring to ensure that airborne asbestos levels remain below permissible limits, safeguarding the health of workers and the public.
Obtaining an Independent Clearance Certificate
A crucial step post-asbestos removal is obtaining a clearance certificate. This independent inspection, conducted by a party not involved in the removal process, confirms that the area is free of ACMs and safe for reoccupation. Global Asbestos Audits prioritises this step to provide peace of mind to their clients.
Maintaining Comprehensive Documentation
For compliance and transparency, maintaining thorough records is vital. Global Asbestos Audits compiles detailed documentation, including an asbestos register and management plan, ensuring that all aspects of the asbestos removal project are accounted for and accessible.
Adherence to Regulatory Compliance
Compliance with local and national regulations is non-negotiable in asbestos removal. Global Asbestos Audits strictly adheres to these regulations, guaranteeing the safety and effectiveness of their asbestos removal projects.
Selecting the right asbestos removal company is not just a matter of compliance but also of safety and reliability. Global Asbestos Audits is a top choice for managing your asbestos removal project. Our commitment to safety, thoroughness, and regulatory compliance, coupled with the importance of an independent clearance inspection post-removal, makes Global Asbestos Audits an ideal partner for handling asbestos-related challenges.
