  • The benefits of hiring a professional asbestos consultant

At Chemsafety we have extensive experience as an Asbestos Consultancy Company and with our Asbestos Test Laboratory.  Recently we have noticed that some people have doubts in hiring a professional to collect their asbestos samples for them. Lets discuss what some of the benefits are to hiring a professional to collect your asbestos samples.



NZ Legislations

If you are thinking of undertaking some renovations on your property, you will need to check for the presence of asbestos before starting the work. This would especially be the case for properties built, or had some work done, between 1950 and 2000, as they are quite likely to contain some asbestos. It is important to highlight that workplace (PCBUs) are required by NZ legislation to have an asbestos management plan with the purpose to identify where asbestos is present, assess the risks to the workers health and make a plan of how to control the risk . Asbestos professionals can advise you on the requirements of NZ legislation and at the end of the process can produce a reliable and independent report. 


Health and Safety

The safest way to know if a material does or does not contain asbestos is to hire a professional asbestos consultant. They will come to your property, assess what materials could contain asbestos and collect the samples. The professional surveyor will then send your sample to an IANZ accredited laboratory for analysis and generate an asbestos report that is easy for you to understand. The advantages of hiring a professional is that they are trained on how to safely handle asbestos material, have the skills and the knowledge of where to find and when to assume the presence of asbestos and can advise you on the requirements of NZ legislation and at the end of the process can produce a reliable and independent report
