Asbestos Management

Asbestos management involves a staged process specifically designed for the problem that exists.  This usually involves the first step of a hazardous substance audit.

A rigorous auditing protocol is followed involving inspecting the site, buildings, yard areas, roof spaces, under floor and air conditioning for presence of friable asbestos, asbestos insulations and asbestos containing materials. The audit includes lead-based paints and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s).

A NATA approved laboratory independent of Benbow Environmental is used to analyse the samples.

Benbow Environmental has experience in asbestos management that spans 30 years. Many difficult and unique projects have been successfully undertaken such as:

  • Roadways surfaced with road bases containing fragments of chrysotile and tremolite;
  • Quarrying basalt with seams of tremolite for a breakwater project;
  • Decontaminating primary schools;
  • Addressing teachers and parents; and
  • Remediation of numerous sites.

Our services include preparation of health and safety plans, supervision and air monitoring, and certificates of clearance.
