Asbestos Inspections

In 2012 an Australian Government commissioned Asbestos Management Review Report dated June 2012 recommended a program be undertaken to remove all asbestos from building, whether commercial, industrial or government by 2030.    Inspection of all buildings and structures constructed before 1987 to identify whether they contain asbestos and the locations and forms of asbestos materials for each building was identified as a key part of the process.  It was suggested that local government would play a key role in developing and maintaining a database of asbestos within the municipality informed by the results of the inspections.

For people buying and selling properties it is now an issue which needs to be addressed as part of legal due diligence.  Property owners, tenants, business premise occupants need to know whether asbestos materials are present in a home, factory, shop or office building.  People purchasing homes constructed before 1987 need to know about asbestos in the house/home they are likely to renovate, especially given the trend for home renovation promoted on TV.

If asbestos is present owners and occupiers need to know where this asbestos is located, what product has been used that contains asbestos, and whether it presents an immediate risk to health.   They also need to know whether, depending upon the planned future of the specific building the risk can be managed before it is expedient to remove it because of redevelopment of the building or site, or by  around 2030 if this date is accepted to be the point at which all buildings in Australia must be asbestos free.

Envirosaphe has been involved in performing asbestos inspections-audits since 1996.   If you are selling a property, purchasing a property, about to lease a property you may want to arrange an inspection so you can be informed in the potential risks you, your family, your colleagues, your employees face from asbestos.
