Asbestos management is an important occupational concern for business as is controlled national legislation
and can cause major headaches if not managed.
Due to premises being old and not maintained may be filled with degrading asbestos materials and exposing occupants to dangerous fibres floating within the air environment.
Buildings in Australia typically contain asbestos if built during 1940’s up until as late as 1980. Uses ranged from fire retardant coatings, concrete, bricks, pipes and fireplace cement, heat, fire, and acid resistant gaskets, pipe insulation, ceiling insulation, fireproof drywall, flooring, roofing, lawn furniture, and drywall joint compound. As old structures age these materials may breakdown causing exposure to asbestos.
