Although there is a legal requirement for asbestos audits of workplaces, there is currently no such legislation to protect private homeowners.
Home renovations are now recognised as a leading cause of asbestos exposure. However, asbestos materials in the home are usually lower risk products and, provided they are identified and not disturbed, safe to leave in place.
Our Experienced & Licensed Asbestos Assessors undertake residential asbestos inspections throughout Victoria.
We are independent of asbestos removal companies, and will only recommend removal of materials if necessary. In many cases, the risks of removing good condition materials are greater than leaving them in place.
BENSS' consultants always provide friendly and impartial advice to safely manage asbestos materials and exposure risks.
We are often able to provide homeowners with advice on how to safely remove lower risk materials themselves, and minimise costs. Where a licensed contractor is engaged, we are able to provide independent advice and Clearance Inspections.
