Licenced Asbestos Assessors are highly experienced asbestos professionals endorsed by the NSW SafeWork to undertake any activities related to a Class A removal work or works related to asbestos fines or high risk- asbestos works including any friable asbestos works.
Licenced Asbestos Assessors are independent and licenced asbestos professionals and can advise you about the proper management of asbestos on-premises in an unbiased manner.
A Licenced Asbestos Assessor licence is mandatory to undertake the following duties:
● Air monitoring for Class A asbestos removal work
● Clearance inspections for Class A asbestos removal work
● Issuing clearance certificates in relation to Class A asbestos removal work
Our team of Licenced asbestos assessors are backed by years of experience and knowledge and can assist you with various services such as asbestos inspection in residential or commercial premises, asbestos testing of building materials, asbestos surveys, and assist in the preparation of asbestos registers and asbestos management plans.
After the completion of any asbestos abatement works including asbestos removal, and asbestos clearance certificate shall be issued by a competent person (for non-friable works) and a licenced asbestos assessor for friable asbestos works. Read more about this on the NSW SafeWork website.
Licenced asbestos assessors can be Occupational Hygienists (a member of the British Occupational Hygiene Society or Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists) and are respected among industry peers and can provide advice on complex asbestos scenarios. They can provide asbestos risk assessments, and write detailed reports for local councils, NSW EPA, and NSW SafeWork. Asbestos removalists recommend that an asbestos scenario is assessed thoroughly by an Occupational Hygienist and a Hygienist report is issued, which details the extent of asbestos contamination and the remedial measures that need to be undertaken so that the premises can be deemed safe for reoccupation.
It is recommended that all asbestos testing and asbestos inspection be undertaken by our licenced consultants to ensure that no stones are left unturned. The samples are tested in a NATA accredited laboratory and all the sample results are issued by the following business day.
If bonded asbestos materials are observed on the soil surface, a simple emu pick can resolve the issue followed by a visual clearance inspection and the issuance of an asbestos clearance certificate. However, if the condition of asbestos materials on the soils is considered friable, a detailed assessment is required as per the National Environment Protection Measure (NEPM 1999) and a proper clean up by a licenced asbestos removalist will be required.
Licenced Asbestos Assessors are highly skilled in managing asbestos, particularly the ones in a much riskier form such as friable asbestos or asbestos fines, including asbestos in soils. Any asbestos in a soil scenario is advised to be assessed by a licenced asbestos assessor and a Certified Environmental Practitioner (Site Contamination) as they can assess both a human health risk and environmental risk. Our consultants offer a combination of these two licences (Licensed Asbestos Assessor and CEnvP (SC) and skills to manage your asbestos in soils problem.
NSW EPA and Councils in New South Wales recognise the Certified Environmental Practitioner (Site Contamination) CEnvP (SC) certification. Engaging a site contamination specialist ensures a minimum standard of competency in the assessment and preparation of technical reports.
If you require any reports to be submitted to the EPA, all reports shall comply with the requirements of the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 (CLM Act) and to be prepared or reviewed and approved by a CEnvP practitioner.
Air monitoring for asbestos shall be undertaken during any movement of soils containing asbestos if that involves the use of machinery that could likely release asbestos fines from handling of the soils.
Soils containing materials are usually transported to a licenced landfill by a licenced asbestos removalist. The recent high asbestos disposal costs to landfills have led to illegal dumping of asbestos-containing soils on private and public land, causing widespread health and environmental risks. Clean up notices have been issued to landowners by local councils or the NSW EPA to undertake cleaning and remediation.
