Working with Asbestos
If testing has confirmed the presence of asbestos in your home and you are starting renovation, demolition or repair work, you can:
- Leave it undisturbed if it is in a good stable condition and won’t be impacted by the renovation work or
- Engage an asbestos licence holder to put in place other options for dealing with asbestos such as sealing, encasing or complete removal.
Safety 1st Removals Ltd is a professional asbestos removal company that provides services in both Auckland and Tauranga. They specialize in the safe handling, removal, and disposal of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).
Working with asbestos requires specialized equipment and techniques to ensure the safety of workers and the public. The team at Safety 1st Removals Ltd are highly trained and experienced in the safe handling of ACMs, ensuring that the process is carried out safely and efficiently.
The first step in working with asbestos is to identify the presence of asbestos. Safety 1st Removals Ltd uses specialized equipment and techniques to test for the presence of asbestos fibers in suspected ACMs. If asbestos is found, the team will develop a plan for the safe removal and disposal of the ACMs.
During the removal process, the team will take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of both workers and occupants of the building. This includes wearing protective clothing and respiratory equipment, as well as sealing off the area to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers.
Once the asbestos has been safely removed, Safety 1st Removals Ltd will ensure that the material is disposed of in accordance with local regulations. They take great care to ensure that the asbestos-containing material is transported and disposed of safely, without posing a risk to the environment or the public.
It is important to note that working with asbestos should only be undertaken by licensed and certified professionals who are trained in the safe handling and disposal of ACMs. Attempting to remove asbestos-containing materials on your own can lead to the release of asbestos fibers into the air, which can be extremely hazardous to your health and the health of others.
