Asbestos & Hazardous Materials Surveys
Are you planning on renovating or building? Make sure you’ve had an asbestos inspection as part of your Development Application (DA) to your local council.
Asbestos was a prolific building material up until December 2003. If your building was constructed prior to this, it’s very likely you will need an Asbestos Survey or Asbestos Management services to ensure the health and safety of those living and working at the property.
Raw Earth provides inspection and reporting of any such hazardous materials present in buildings or structures likely to harm people living and working within the property. Once an Asbestos Survey or Hazardous Materials Survey is undertaken, we establish site specific management or remediation plans tailored to the sites intended future use.
Bushfire Recovery, Victoria & NSW
Raw Earth completed the remediation of bushfire affected properties containing friable asbestos following the 2019-20 bushfires across NSW and Victoria.
The remediation consisted of OH&S Supervision and site compliance of demolition and excavation works.
Asbestos in Soil
Raw Earth's Environmental Scientists, Occupational Hygienists and SafeWork NSW Licensed Asbestos Assessors are highly experienced in the assessment and management of both bonded and friable asbestos in soils. Our experienced staff can help you from the initial assessment stage, through to remediation and final validation.
- Asbestos Contaminated Site Investigation & Remediation, Sydney
- Raw Earth completed the demolition, validation of soil and clearance of fire damaged asbestos containing structures at a private property in western Sydney.
- The site also contained extensive illegally imported materials which was under the management of an EPA Clean-up Notice. Raw Earth developed and undertook a Sampling, Analysis and Quality Plan (SAQP) which was endorsed by NSW EPA for the detailed characterisation of the asbestos contamination throughout the imported materials to allow for more cost effective remediation strategy to be implemented. The characterisation works involved the supervision of excavation works, collection of samples for laboratory analysis, data interpretation and reporting.
Asbestos Removal Supervision & Project Management
Raw Earth's SafeWork NSW Licensed Asbestos Assessors are experienced in the independent supervision of asbestos removal, demolition and excavation contractors so that you can be confident your asbestos removal has been performed in compliance with relevant OH&S regulations and legislation to ensure the health of your family, staff and community. We will remain on-site during the entire process and can also provide a clearance certificate on the successful completion of the removal.
Asbestos Air Monitoring
Raw Earth’s SafeWork NSW Licensed Asbestos Assessors can conduct air monitoring both during and after asbestos removal to ensure your home or workplace is free from airborne asbestos fibres. Our experienced staff are also able to manage and supervise the entire asbestos removal process for you and will ensure your project is compliant with all the relevant OH&S requirements.
