Hazardous Materials Assessments

 

Typically hazardous materials include lead, Synthetic Mineral Fibre (SMF) such as fibre glass, ozone depleting substances, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and of course asbestos.  Prior to demolition or refurbishment of a building it is normal that hazards associated with these types of materials are identified and controls implemented prior to the works commencing.

Prensa is able to undertake pre demolition audits for hazardous materials and undertake sampling and analysis where there is uncertainty whether materials may contain hazardous materials.  Hazards include both potential exposure of workers to hazardous materials and the disturbance and subsequent contamination of the site including contamination of air conditioning systems. With a comprehensive knowledge of statutory obligations and industry codes of practice, Prensa consultants are able to mitigate the risks associated with disturbance of these materials.
