Asbestos Clearance Certificates
A Clearance Certificate is required following any licensed asbestos works
Following any licensed asbestos works, a Visual Clearance Inspection must be undertaken, to confirm the work has been completed to a satisfactory standard, and areas are safe to reoccupy for normal use.
An Air Monitoring Clearance is required for any licensed works with friable (higher risk) materials, in addition to a Visual Clearance Inspection, to establish if affected areas are safe to reoccupy with regards to airborne asbestos fibres. Air Monitoring Clearances are often an effective way to address asbestos exposure concerns following any asbestos works or potential disturbance.
Our experienced & licensed Asbestos Assessors can assist with Asbestos Air Monitoring and Clearance Inspections, for all asbestos projects.
During a Clearance Inspection all surfaces, ledges, fixtures and fittings in the asbestos work area are inspected for asbestos material dusts and debris.
Any suspect materials identified during the inspection must be removed before the area can be cleared.
A typical Clearance Inspection will include the work area, adjacent areas that may have been impacted, waste transit routes and the surrounds of any waste containers, skips or vehicles.
Air Monitoring Clearances
If an Air Monitoring Clearance is required, the asbestos work area must not be passed for reoccupation until airborne fibre levels are below 0.01f/ml (fibres per millilitre) of air.
Air samples are taken by drawing a known volume of air over a filter, which is then analysed for the presence of asbestos fibres by microscopy.
All samples are analysed by our NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited partner laboratory.
