Asbestos Inspection Checklist

Depending on your specific situation you may require different Asbestos related services. Therefore, Jim’s Building Inspections offers three types of asbestos inspections for your convenience:

  1. The Visual Only package looks at areas that are suspected of being asbestos containing materials. These areas are documented and a management strategy is provided to assist you with the next steps required and how to proceed depending on the outcomes. These inspections are most common when buying a property and samples cannot be taken as it will cause minor damage to the property.
  2. The Visual + Samples package includes everything in the visual package as well as a sample taken for testing purposes. Additional samples can be taken as needed for this report type (at an additional cost). This report type is popular for those considering renovations and who are wanting to maintain a safe environment for themselves and their family.
  3. The Air Monitoring packages is used by asbestos removalists and OHS officers who want to take measures to ensure the quality of the air during the asbestos removal process. Additionally, this service can be used after an incident has occurred where asbestos has unintentionally been disturbed and asbestos fibres have possibly been released into the air.

How Quickly Can I Get a Report?

In most situations, Jim’s Building Inspections can offer same day Asbestos Inspection service in WA and provide visual reports via email within 24 hours of the inspection being completed. If samples are required for testing, the results can take between 3-5 days.

Asbestos Register and Management Plans

In addition to asbestos testing, Jim’s Building Inspections also offers asbestos registers and management plans for business owners and workplace managers.

Workplaces must comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Acts and their related Regulations, in their State. Work safety authorities in each state have issued Compliance Codes to provide practical guidance to those who have duties or obligations under the OHS Act and Regulations, in particular persons with management control of workplaces.

These Codes generally advise on the responsibilities of workplace managers, including how to safely manage and arrange for the safe removal of asbestos in the workplace.

Further information about the requirements of Managers of Workplaces can be found at: http://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/
