Removing asbestos is hazardous work that should only be undertaken by qualified professionals with experience in handling this dangerous material.
Before you book with an asbestos removal company to take care of your asbestos removal requirements, you should ask them the following questions:
- Do you have a WORKSAFE license?
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
- Do you have HEPA (asbestos) vacuums?
- Do you wear the legally required PPE?
Asking these questions gives you peace of mind that the company you employ to remove asbestos is fully up to code and work within safety standards. It is essential that you hire a legitimate asbestos removal company to ensure the safety of anyone coming in to contact with this hazardous material.
Do you have a WORKSAFE license?
It is essential that the asbestos removal company that you hire has a WorkSafe Asbestos License. According to the WorkSafe website.
It has been recognised for many years that asbestos is a hazardous substance. The people who work with asbestos must be trained in the safe way of handling and transporting the material.
A licence is required in Western Australia for the removal of materials that contain asbestos. Only a licence holder, or an employee of a licence holder, may carry out this type of work.
If you require asbestos removal services, contact the team at Asbestos Removal Specialist WA to discuss your needs. We are licensed by WorkSafe and go above and beyond WorkSafe requirements for asbestos removal and decontamination.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
It is important that the asbestos removal company you hire has Public Liability Insurance in order to cover any issues that may arise. As we have mentioned, asbestos is a dangerous substance with hazardous health risks involved.
The extensive and indiscriminate use of Asbestos-containing Materials in construction means there are many places in your home that can be asbestos rich health hazards. Contact Asbestos Removal Specialist WA to talk about the potential risks of asbestos in your home or place of business today.
Do you have HEPA vacuums?
HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. HEPA vacuums should be used to remove dangerous asbestos dust after removal to get rid of any residual particles.
We use HEPA vacuums to ensure that every last particle of asbestos has been removed from your property, ensuring maximum for you, your family, and our workers. Contact us today and ask us about our asbestos removal services.
Do you wear the legally required PPE?
PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment, is an essential requirement of working with asbestos. We ensure that our asbestos removal specialists are always wearing the legally required PPE gear to maintain maximum safety and minimise risk. Be sure to ask your prospective asbestos removal company that they wear the correct PPE at all times.
