Asbestos Dangers at Work and Home
When asbestos is disturbed, it can pose a risk to anyone’s health including homeowners, tenants, students and employees in the workplace.
The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (OHS Regulations) require employers and those within management or control of workplaces to identify and control risks associated with asbestos. Their duties include identifying asbestos in workplaces including labelling it, keeping an asbestos register and controlling risks to health associated with asbestos.
For more information on the requirements of asbestos in workplaces, visit WorkSafe.
Managing Asbestos Removal
We understand that removing these materials can release fibres into the air which can be dangerous for people, animals and ecosystem. No matter what size your project is, our asbestos removalists ensure complete peace of mind to all our customers.
Our team is comprised of highly skilled removalists who are trained and proven to undergo safe and compliant techniques to complete asbestos abatement jobs to high standards. Southstar Asbestos Removals put customers at ease with our experience and knowledge in minimising and eliminating risk to asbestos exposure.
In most cases, asbestos removal must be done by a licensed asbestos removalist. Unlicensed removal of limited amounts of non-friable asbestos is permitted under certain circumstances, however it is not recommended.
Licensed removalists must comply with particular requirements when removing asbestos. They also must notify WorkSafe when removing asbestos.
