Since 2006 we have surveyed and tested over 9,000 properties for a range of hazardous substances. Our survey staff are fully qualified, having completed all NZQA asbestos courses including Class A, B, Supervisor and Assessor level. They also have international training in BOHS IP402 Asbestos Surveying In Buildings.
For surveying and testing to be effective and compliant, there are specific conditions that must be met. These requirements depend on the type of property, its location and whether it is to be repaired or demolished. Our team are well versed on these requirements and prepare survey plans accordingly.
Safe, effective and compliant asbestos management is very much dependent on proper planning at the onset; our team invest the time and attention to detail required. We recommend that in all cases of asbestos testing and scoping, measurements are taken as this avoids multiple visits and ensures a credible result. We scope all sites we test or survey as part of our standard practice.
Following the survey, samples are tested via scientific analysis in an IANZ accredited laboratory. Usually these results are available within 24 hours. At which point one of our team will interpret them, and present them to you along with recommended next steps that may entail management with ongoing monitoring or removal.
