Throughout Australia contamination of land with asbestos is widespread. In developed areas damage, demolition, poor removal of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) and improper waste disposal mean that ACM debris can often be found on or below ground surfaces and in building rubble.
BENSS provides land and building waste asbestos contamination services.
The majority of ACMs manufactured worldwide, and used extensively in all types of construction, were asbestos cement products. Cement materials account for most asbestos land and building waste contamination.
It is not uncommon for ‘friable’ ACMs to have been buried during construction or demolition of buildings, and these materials in soil or rubble present a high exposure risk.
Risk assessment and remediation options for land contaminated with asbestos can vary considerably.
BENSS Asbestos Assessors identify, measure and assess the type, location and extent of contamination.
We guide our clients through the remediation process, ensuring health and environmental risks are mitigated safely and efficiently.
