Asbestos inspection, audits and surveys are carried out to generate an asbestos register in order to assist the management of in situ asbestos containing materials and the safe removal of asbestos from commercial, residential, industrial structures.
Asbestos containing materials such as 'fibro' sheeting are commonly found in soils where fill materials are present as well as to the ground surfaces and below building floors and slabs where inappropriate demolition and construction have taken place.
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.
Sampling for airborne asbestos fibres is carried out to assess the asbestos health risk associated with the presence of atmospheric abestos fibres in workplaces and at construction sites. SWE is NATA accredited for the analysis of asbestos fibre samples collected from air monitoring and testing.
Asbestos removal and remediation projects can be managed and organised by SWE on behalf of the builder, owner or tenant to ensure the correct asbestos removal procedures are implemented and to ascertain the health and safety of staff and building occupants.
