Asbestos Sampling and Testing
Samples are carefully taken from each suspect material to determine the presence, type and quantity of asbestos. Samples are examined by electron-microscopy (in association with the National Institute for Occupational Health), to clearly distinguish asbestos from other inorganic or organic fibers.
We only use approved Approved Asbestos Inspection Authority Certified (AAIA) contractors (OH 0072 – CI 03) to do asbestos testing.
They are accredited according to national and international standards as well as being recognised by the The Department of Labour and other relevant government organisations.
It is important that asbestos testing is done by a certified professional such as the team here at Asbestos Removal & Roofing. This material can have severe health impacts if proper precautions and safety measurements are not in place when asbestos testing is being done.
