Most buildings constructed prior to 1980 are likely to contain asbestos in some form, and asbestos materials such as gaskets and brake pads can be found installed in plant and equipment up until the National Asbestos Ban in December 2003.
The photograph above shows a typical asbestos cement factory roof, asbestos cement flue pipes & cowls, and asbestos cement guttering & drain pipes. Woven asbestos rope is likely to be hidden within glazing bars of the high level windows.
If asbestos materials are, or are likely to be present in the workplace, an Asbestos Register must be documented. Anyone planning works which might disturb ACMs, such as electricians, plumbers or maintenance contractors must first be given a copy of the Asbestos Register.
BENSS' Asbestos Assessment Reports serve as the Asbestos Register for a site, including all the information required by State and Territory legislation. Our Asbestos Registers include photographs, marked plans for larger sites and additional information important for ACM identification and management, such as descriptions and locations of non-asbestos materials.
Our Asbestos Registers and Inspection Reports are designed to be clear and easy for use by all, not just industry professionals.
