Amphetamine manufacture has been recognized as a significant public health issue and there are now Australian Guidelines for the testing, clearance and remediation of illegal drug laboratory sites. The issues can be complex and requires extensive knowledge of the chemistry and toxicity of a range of chemicals and precursors. In many cases, cleaning up the sites requires cleaning of complex mixtures of highly toxic chemicals of unknown purity.
Most clandestine drug laboratories are located in rental properties.
Remediation of a clandestine laboratory site
HAZCON has been working with a number of property managers, landlords and agencies on remediating known clandestine drug laboratories. HAZCON has access to a range of assessment and analytical techniques and sources laboratories that are able to test to the very low levels specified in the Australian Guidelines. HAZCON can do the assessment and develop the remediation action plan (RAP) which will ensure that the buildings are fit for re-habitation in the minimum time available.
