Asbestos Audits Queensland (AAQ) and our services
Our asbestos inspection, auditing and reporting services
Your asbestos audit or asbestos survey includes a thorough inspection and sampling of all suspect material (friable or non friable). If there is an indication of any change in colour, texture or appearance of the material additional samples may be needed.
Samples are sent to only NATA Laboratories for analysis to ensure the minimum of likelihood of errors in identifying the samples as required by the Code of Practice for the Safe Management of Asbestos in Workplaces
Once the samples have been analysed, we provide you with a comprehensive report including an Asbestos Management Plan, Risk Assessment and Asbestos Register. Your report will include copies of photographs taken on site along with the laboratory sample analysis results.
The Asbestos Register notes the location of asbestos material, type and form of the asbestos, condition of the asbestos and any potential health risks from the material. You will receive your asbestos report in electronic format for your convenience.
Our manager, Brian Sketcher has over 30 years’ experience in inspecting for asbestos and managing asbestos hazards in buildings. He was also one of the founding members of the Asbestos Industry Association in Queensland.
Aside from compliance services, we also offer inspection update or re-audit services at intervals dependent upon what is in the asbestos register. For example asbestos low density board or an unsealed asbestos cement roof should be checked at least yearly whereas asbestos containing vinyl tiles of asbestos cement sheet in good condition and sealed can go as long as five years before review and re-inspection. It is a MANDATORY requirement that a review and update is carried out if asbestos was found or assumed or presumed to be present at least five yearly intervals if not sooner.
