Air Monitoring is conducted on sites during asbestos removal works to detect if minimum airborne fibre rates are exceeded outside of removal areas or enclosures. If high levels are detected the removalist is required to clean the area until a visual inspection and satisfactory air monitoring results are achieved.
Whilst air monitoring is legally required during any friable removal works, it is often also performed as an optional assurance during non friable removal or in high risk areas. Monitoring of friable asbestos removal is required for the entire duration of the removal works with the air monitoring test report issued at the end of each day. This ensures that any problems are remediated as soon as possible.
A licensed Asbestos Assessor will place the air monitoring pumps prior to the works commencing. At the conclusion of the work or at the end of the day’s work the pumps will be brought back to our NATA accredited fibre counting laboratory. where the filters will be examined under a microscope to determine the airborne fibre levels. You will then be issued with an Air Monitoring Test Report and advised if unacceptable levels have been detected.
To ensure staff availability please book air monitoring services in advance. Please specify approximately how long work will take and the nature of the work. Finishing times can be booked in advance, or a call can be made to our offices later in the day.
