Asbestos Removal

The Asbestos Regulations act, 2001outlines the regulations in dealing with Asbestos. The removal of Asbestos is a hazardous operation and as a result, all contractors need to be certified according to the regulations.

We make certain that our staff members are medically monitored to ensure that they have not been exposed to any harmful material. This includes exit medicals on completion of the scope of work.

After we have successfully completed cleaning operations, depending on conditions, we seal the asbestos in with a sealer coat to prevent future exposure or we dispose of the asbestos.

We make it our responsibility to guarantee that a registered disposal company disposes of all materials collected from operations and issues a certification that the material has been disposed of according to the regulation.
