In order to confirm whether you have asbestos on site, initially you will need samples taken for laboratory analysis. We have licensed professionals who can take samples for you and organise the Laboratory tests. The samples are taken under controlled conditions to ensure continued safety of occupants of the property.
An independent IANZ laboratory, certified in testing for Asbestos, receives the samples and undertakes the tests, then provides Asbestos Nelson with a certificate showing whether the sample contains Asbestos or not and if so, what type of Asbestos.
If the laboratory results confirm that no Asbestos is present, then our licensed professional will issue a Clearance Certificate meaning the site is safe for re-occupation.
If the laboratory returns a positive Asbestos result, we then conduct a survey to determine the nature, and quantity of the asbestos and the danger it is to those who have come into contact with the site. It is important to note that not all Asbestos needs to be removed. Provided the Asbestos is undamaged and in good condition it normally poses no risk. Our licensed professionals will advise on this. If the Asbestos is deemed to be in an unsafe condition, we then formulate a plan for safe removal and decontamination of the site
Testing and reporting of asbestos on site will take approximately 3 days.
The Asbestos Removal Process
Once the decision has been made that the Asbestos needs to be removed, Asbestos Nelson is required to register an application with Worksafe New Zealand and create a register of documentation needed for the removal and decontamination process. This is necessary to ensure all safety procedures are adhered to in the complete process.
After removal is complete our licensed professional will take samples of the site to be tested by an independent IANZ laboratory to ensure that the specific asbestos risk zone has been returned back to an acceptable and safe level. If the Asbestos is removed from an internal “Living” space, we contract an independent assessor to conduct air quality testing to ensure that no Asbestos fibres remain airborne inside the building.
A Clearance Certificate is issued by the laboratory once the site is confirmed to have safe Asbestos levels, allowing full use of the site again.
