All sampling and testing of asbestos containing materials are analysed and identified in-house at National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia or a NATA, accredited laboratory. We can perform sampling and testing of soils, building materials and air for the presence of asbestos fibres.
Asbestos materials can be submitted to SWE for laboratory analysis to confirm whether or not the material contains asbestos fibres.
To have a sample of suspected building material such as fibro sheeting, vinyl tiles, asbestos cement roof sheeting or any other type of asbestos containing materials tested for asbestos please follow the below simple steps:
Step 1: Obtain asbestos testing sample
Collect a sample of the building material or soil suspected to contain asbestos. We recommend that you contact SWE and contract us to collect the sample to reduce the health risk to you or your employee. If you choose to collect the sample yourself, please read and adhere to the attached safe sampling guidance. Click the link below to open the form:
Step 2: Submit sample(s) for asbestos identification
Carry out safe sampling at your own risk and submit the samples to SWE by filling in the following sample submission form and deliver the sample with the submission form to one of our office. Please ensure that the outer plastic bag is clean with no trace of asbestos to ensure the safety of couriers and our staff. Click the link below to open the form:
Step 3: Payment and NATA Report
Make payment for the asbestos samples as per details in the sample submission PDF and obtain a NATA certificate of analysis for your submitted samples.
Asbestos Air Testing
SWE can also perform air testing or asbestos monitoring for airborne asbestos fibres. This can be carried out as exposure monitoring, indicative background monitoring or control monitoring during asbestos remediation projects. Contact us for a quote for asbestos air monitoring.
