The Expert Guide To Asbestos Testing For Commercial Buildings In Sydney

Asbestos Removal Sydney

Do you suspect you have asbestos products in your commercial or office building in the Sydney region?

Ensuring you implement a safe asbestos management policy is essential to providing a safe working environment for your staff and for the general public. Asbestos products are still widely found in commercial buildings throughout the Sydney CBD, Inner West, Hills District and North Shore.

The hazardous effects of asbestos is widely known. Fatal diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma are some of the most common.

Asbestos fibres were used to strengthen materials without limiting flexibility. Commonly found in cement sheeting, asbestos was also used extensively in electrical insulators and heat insulators that were used in the construction of commercial facilities.

The onset of asbestos-related respiratory disease does not appear until after 25-40 years after inhalation exposure.

How Can I Tell If My Office Building Has Asbestos Containing Materials In It?

The only reliable way to confirm if asbestos containing materials (ACM) are present in your property is to have the materials tested by a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) certified laboratory. The laboratory will undertake an assessment of the material to determine an estimation of airborne asbestos fibres, synthetic mineral fibre count and identification of asbestos fibres.

A NATA accredited laboratory will provide 3rd party verification of capability and compliance as well as the International recognition of the results. For insurance and legal reasons, it is essential that you confirm that the testing facility complies with the international standards for laboratories and inspection facilities.

In order to undertake testing of materials in your office building, you will need to contact your local asbestos specialist to take a sample of materials from your property to ensure sample integrity. Following analysis of the sample at the laboratory, you will be supplied with a report highlighting the specific amount of airborne asbestos fibres.


What Should I Do If I Suspect Asbestos In My Office Building?

Asbestos becomes hazardous when it is disturbed, damaged, cut, broken or scraped. Fibres become airborne increasing the risk of respiratory exposure.

It is important to note that asbestos containing materials may be in any commercial property that was constructed prior to December 2003.

The Work Health & Safety Act 2011 (WH&S) provides a comprehensive framework of procedures regarding asbestos in the workplace including:

Following analysis of the above mentioned Work Health & Safety policies it is vital that commercial property owners and facility managers answer the following questions:

  • Are the Asbestos Registers and AMPs up to date?
  • Are the current Site Specific Asbestos Removal Control Plans (ARCP) and Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) compliant with all relevant legislation and requirements?
