The Health and Safety Regulations require background and clearance monitoring for friable removal jobs only.
However, the person who commissioned the removal may request air monitoring for non-friable works as part of their own internal procedures or where the asbestos removal is being undertaken indoors or in a high profile/sensitive location.
Air monitoring is not intended to be used as a preventive or a real time control measure, but as a check in order to ensure that control procedures are operating satisfactorily and that employees, contractors and members of the public is not being exposed to harmful environments.
Air Monitoring gives us a result that can be compared to the occupational exposure standard of 0.1 f/ml.
Air monitoring in Victoria should be undertaken by a suitably competent person; who has appropriate qualifications, knowledge, skills and experience. All HAZCON asbestos consultants undergo an intensive in-house and on-site mentored training program.
