Helia EHS has access to NATA laboratories to test for potential respirable asbestos fibres after our consultants take the samples.
Asbestos air monitoring confirms the asbestos controls in place are working and the asbestos poses no elevated risk to the health of your workforce or the general public. This is generally undertaken where ASBESTOS-CONTAINING material is identified in a poor condition with the help of a NATA laboratory to which Helia EHS has access. Helia EHS undertakes monitoring assessments of (non-asbestos removal) processes that may be liberating asbestos fibres into the air, or where ASBESTOS-CONTAINING material is being removed.
Legislation requires asbestos air monitoring to be conducted before, during and upon completion of all Class A asbestos removal and remediation works.
Although not always required, we recommend asbestos air monitoring with our Melbourne team also be done during all potential asbestos disturbance works. This proactive approach often avoids construction project delays. Historical evidence of airborne fibre levels even below criteria can be called upon at a later stage – if ever requested by both internal and external parties.
Asbestos air monitoring is an essential component of this process, and the NATA-accredited laboratory that Helia EHS has access to offers reliable and accurate testing services to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
