Asbestos Management Plan

By |June 23rd, 2014

When a home or office building has asbestos installed, it must be managed carefully, especially if it begins to break down. Asbestos Plus specialises in asbestos management plans that will ensure the safety of all those who pass through the structure. With a professionally executed plan, you can be confident that your health will not be at risk.

When managing asbestos, it is important to identify where it is securely installed and not posing any health risks. When safe materials are found, our team of experts can verify if the materials are secured correctly. If not, we can easily secure the asbestos with state of the art tools and materials, ensuring that your current asbestos will stay safe for years to come.

Unfortunately, sometimes an asbestos management plan must include the removal of unsafe materials from a building. In these cases, our team will use their expertise to identify problem areas, secure the area and carefully remove the materials in a timely fashion. Once the dangerous asbestos has been removed, we will seal the areas and ensure that no more airborne asbestos is present before allowing you or your loved ones to enter.

Asbestos Plus offers some of the best asbestos management plans around. No matter what your current situation may be, we want you to be safe in your own home or office. There is no need to live with asbestos in the air when we can remove it easily and safely. With Asbestos Plus on your side, there is no need to worry about your asbestos problem ever again.

Asbestos Health Risks

By |July 25th, 2013

Asbestos Health Risks - Australia and the UK have the highest rates of asbestos-related death in the world. This is understood to be because of the amount of asbestos used in these countries, and the relatively high proportion used of the most dangerous types, blue and brown. It is estimated there have already been at least 4,700 deaths from mesothelioma in Australia since records began in the early 1980s and more than 25,000 Australians will die from it over the next 40 years. 
Currently, each year 500 men and 100 women develop mesothelioma in Australia, and this is expected to rise to 900 new cases a year by 2020. Asbestos Health Risks

Asbestos Cancer - Those who are particularly at risk of asbestos-induced cancers, as noted by the Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia Inc, are people exposed to the loose fibres of asbestos in mining, manufacturing, building and construction or at work, school or in the home; as well as those exposed through asbestos removal, and the consequences of uncontrolled, unsafe removal. Asbestos Cancer

What is Asbestos

By |July 25th, 2013

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material that poses risk to health by inhalation when the fibres become airborne and are subsequently inhaled. Asbestos is made up of very fine fibres, but the most dangerous are those naked to the eye, yet penetrate the deepest areas of the lungs.
Exposure to asbestos fibres is known to cause Mesothelioma – a deadly disease caused by inhaling the particles of dust as the asbestos degrades; eating away at the lining of the lungs and developing into a deadly cancer. It is known to cause diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer, pleural plaques, and pleural thickening.
