Asbestos & Hazardous Materials

How can EHO Consulting help with Asbestos or Hazardous Materials?

Asbestos was once used in Australia in more than 3,000 different products including fibro, flue pipes, drains, roofs, gutters, brakes, clutches and gaskets. Asbestos becomes a health risk when its fibres are released into the air and breathed in. Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

EHO Consulting offers a range of asbestos inspection, asbestos testing, asbestos building survey, asbestos awareness training (NSW), for commercial and private clients.

Under WHS Regulations the only way to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos within a material is for a sample of the material to be analysed by an accredited/approved laboratory. 

Asbestos registers and management plans

The asbestos register is a document that lists all identified – or assumed – asbestos in a workplace. 

The person with management or control of a workplace must ensure an asbestos register is prepared and kept at the workplace.

An asbestos register is not required for a workplace if:

  • the workplace was a building that was constructed after 31 December 2003, and
  • no asbestos has been identified in the workplace, and
  • no asbestos is likely to be present at the workplace from time to time.
