Cover yourself legally and with your health & wellbeing by getting an asbestos inspection.

Asbestos Inspections

The ASB Environmental team are able to preform asbestos inspections for your workplace or home.

In the event you think you may have discovered asbestos fiber, it is important not to disturb it. Our team has years of experience eliminating asbestos fiber from residential and commercial properties. We will do some asbestos testing, if it is required, and determine whether or not it is asbestos. In the cases were the asbestos testing comes back as positive we will begin the asbestos removal process quickly and safely as not to disturb the asbestos.

Asbestos Register Inspection

We can also preform asbestos inspections for the asbestos register required by the government. Under the code of practice any workplace building that was built prior to January 1st 1990 must have an asbestos register. The building could be a home you work from, or a large office complex, it doesn't matter as long as the main function of the building or an area in it is used as a workplace it will still need an asbestos register.

This is a requirement under the legislation for workplace health and safety. A lot of workplaces don't have a register in check, and if an accident happens and you don't have an asbestos register the government can give you a fine. The ASB Environmental team offers two different types of asbestos inspections for the register at different price points. Both asbestos inspections apply and are valid for the asbestos registers, but would be required for different reasons.

Non-destructive Asbestos Inspection

Ideal for those who need to have an inspection for the asbestos register and consist of the following:

  • Visual Inspection
  • No samples will be taken
  • No damage done to the property
  • Assumed to have Asbestos for the register

Destructive Asbestos Inspection

Ideal for those who need to demolish or renovate the building and consist of the following:

  • Samples are taken
  • Minimal damage created to get the samples
  • Samples are sent to a lab for asbestos testing
  • Gives a more accurate asbestos register

You could only get the non-destructive asbestos inspection if you know that your workplace might have some, but it is concealed well and because of that you don't need to know all the extra information you would get from asbestos testing. If you were to then want to demolish part of the building or need to anything that would disturb the asbestos, having the asbestos testing to see if there is any asbestos so it can be removed before any damage is done in that area.

All of the asbestos testings are done in an approved lab by the national association of approved testing (NATA).

Asbestos Removal Cost

We realise that asbestos removal can seem like a high cost for many residents and business owners. However, in the long run your family members and employees long-term well being will outweigh this expense. ASB Environmental’s asbestos removal service is both cost-effective and competitive, simply call us right now for an obligation-free quote.

The price can depend on many factors including:

  • Location - of the job distance from Townsville
  • Access – as an example a Bonded Asbestos on the outside of a building 5 stories up may require thousands of dollars for scaffolding, or obstacles that might cause further damage like rocks, roots or trees
  • Area (m2) – the size and area of asbestos products to be removed
  • Risk Assessment – some jobs inherently carry more risk than others. To determine this we access and look at the following areas
    • Condition of the asbestos. Is it deteriorating?
    • The need for personal protection equipment
    • Make it safe for people to go in and remove the asbestos. Adding handrail on scaffolding
    • Determining if the asbestos needs to be isolated
    • Putting in a control plan in place to reduce the risk
  • Timing Restrictions – If the job needs to be done quickly the cost can increase as more people will need to be hired for the job

There are several different types of asbestos, which can only be determined via a lab through asbestos testing, which provides an examination report. Please note, it's not only unsafe but illegal to try and remove the asbestos yourself. Always ask a professional to get this job done, as it is far more healthy for you in the long run.
