Friable Asbestos Removal
Friable asbestos is the most hazardous form of asbestos to have on your property and requires removal by a licenced operator. Asbestos, as you may know, is potentially extremely dangerous to human health. The inhalation of asbestos fibres can result in lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. These are, often, fatal diseases and conditions. Governments and authorities in Australia have banned the new uses of products containing asbestos since 2003. Friable asbestos removal must be handled by an appropriately licenced professional in Adelaide and throughout SA. We can assist you with all your requirements in regard to the safe removal of this highly hazardous material in accordance with the law. We offer a free quote on asbestos removal.
What is Friable Asbestos?
The agreed definition of ‘friable asbestos’, according to the Australian Government’s Code of Practice for the Safe Removal of Asbestos 2nd Ed. [NOHSC:200292005)} “means asbestos-containing material which, when dry, is or may become crumbled, pulverised or reduced to powder by hand pressure.” Some examples of this may include the backing on asbestos vinyl sheet flooring, boiler insulation, fire retardant material on steel work, sprayed insulation, and asbestos pipe insulation. Friable asbestos products were commonly used in house construction in Australia up until 1990.
Who Can Remove Friable Asbestos?
The removal of any quantity of friable asbestos must be carried out by someone with an unrestricted asbestos removal licence. We are trained in the removal of this highly hazardous air-borne material. The national exposure standard of 0.1 fibres/mL must never be exceeded, when it comes to friable asbestos in the atmosphere. Our asbestos removal technicians use personal protective equipment and are rigorously instructed in the employment of this gear. Safe work methods are, also, utilised to reduce the risk of exposure. These may include the bonding effect of cement and other binders. Air monitoring is used to detect fibre levels in the atmosphere throughout the procedure. Non-friable asbestos material can become friable through fire and via weathering, water damage, and physical damage. We can assess whether you have friable asbestos on your premises or property.
