ASBESTOS REMOVAL IN NEW CASTLE

Slide2:

Even though the use of asbestos has been prohibited in Australia since 2003, many products containing this hazardous material still exist in many domestic and commercial buildings in the Newcastle region. Thus, if you have a renovation or demolition plan in mind, you need to take extra precautions in case you are dealing with asbestos containing material (ACM) by performing a safe asbestos removal process. Protect yourself from asbestos hazards

Slide3:

Deadly fibrous materials in Newcastle Asbestos is a material that contains strong and tiny fibres used for multiple purposes. It was mainly used during the years between the 1920s and the late 1980s, so any building constructed between these years will most likely contain it. Prolonged exposure to fibres can lead to severe health complications such as increasing the chance of lung cancer.

Slide4:

Your property may contain ACM This hazardous material can be commonly found in: Ceiling and flooring tiles Fencing products Corrugated roofing products Joint compounds Cement sheeting

Slide6:

Health hazards from fibre exposure When ACMs are damaged or disturbed, they can release airborne fibres inside and outside of your building. Even inhaling a few fibres can be harmful to your health in the future. The health effects of fibre inhalation can take anywhere from about 12 to 20 years to manifest into identifiable symptoms.
