Kurt enjoys the investigation process of his role, as well as getting to know our clients, their sites and being able to problem solve complex issues.
One of our clients were removing 20,000 square metres of friable asbestos attached to non friable asbestos material which was scheduled to be removed. Regulations stated that the Class A material had to be removed within an enclosure, however this proved impossible. With discussions with the client, the Chemsafety asbestos team were able to come up with a strategy involving personal and environmental monitoring approved by Worksafe NZ to allow the removal be conducted that was both time and cost effective and ensured worker safety.
