There are four options in asbestos removal:
By leaving the asbestos intact, but labelled, providing it is in good condition, and is unlikely to be disturbed, it will then be unable to feed fibres into workers' breathing zones.
If the asbestos is enclosed so that disturbance of the material and entry into the enclosure is not possible, this can be a viable solution
Encapsulate or deep seal the asbestos, providing it is in good condition and unlikely to be disturbed.
Asbestos should be removed if it's surface is damaged, crumbling, or likely to be disturbed. Removal of asbestos obviously eliminates the hazard forever – provided it is done by a professional licensed asbestos removalist. The removal of loose asbestos or amounts of bonded asbestos sheeting greater than 10 square meters must be done by a licensed person.
This is where Safe Asbestos Management can help you.
If you are removing an area less than 10 metres you will need to comply with local council regulations and have it disposed of correctly. Remember asbestos is dangerous and must be treated with extreme care.
