Asbestosis is a serious, chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease. Inhaled asbestos fibers aggravate lung tissues, which cause them to scar. When asbestos is disturbed, that is when the fibers can be released.
As this can be unpreventable in certain cases, we recommend engaging with an asbestos removal Melbourne service provider.
You must have a licensed asbestos removal professional remove asbestos larger than 10 square metres. WorkSafe still recommends individuals to engage with a licensed removalist and undertake asbestos awareness training for any job of asbestos removal under 10 square meters.
Under the model WHS Regulations, two licences have been established: Class A and Class B.
- Class A licence- permits you to remove all types of asbestos, including both friable and non-friable forms.
- Class B licence- you can only remove non-friable asbestos.
More information about asbestos removal regulations can be found here.
When it comes to asbestos checks, it can be diffcult to determine if it is asbestos as it can look similiar to other non-asbestos materials. Asbestos testing and sampling will validate whether asbestos is identified in a material.
We have extensive experience with removing and disposing asbestos. That’s why when Southstar provide asbestos removal & asbestos disposal quotes, we can identify and advise our customers whether or not a material is asbestos if we have removed it before.
A clearance certificate provides formal clearance and validate that all visible asbestos materials have been removed from the area.
We can issue asbestos clearance certificates via experienced and independent occupational hygienist. This allows our customers to feel confident that their asbestos has been completely removed.
