    Aspectos removal and safety

    we have a new car parts sales company opening soon
    but at what cost to us all
    the whole area has to be aspestos removed signs up
    and the worst part is it is right near the local tafe and what precautions have been taken to protect our up and coming youth of australia
    and as for o h and s being used
    it is ridiculous to believe the amount of money being waisted to bulid a new building
    and if it is windy dont be near the site
    how do we prevent the contamination from reocurring

    maudez says: I was living in a house where the ceiling was aspectos. We wanted to remove so we call a company call Kowhai Ceilings. We didn't have to move any of the furniture as the covered every inch of the house with plastic. They let me check before the starteing their work. I was very pleased with what they did and they also put up another ceiling at the same cost.

    if they did and it catches on fore make sure you have breathing devises if you reenter

    Depending on which State you live, Google the appropriate government site to learn requirements and safe removal of asbestos.

    stretch says: i agree and you should make sure they are registered for the job of removal
    and it may not hurt to request what they do with the contaminated product

    stretch says: this is great that the same company gets the thumbs up
    but
    what do they do with the product they have removed from your homes in australia they generally burry it and then the contamination slowly releases itself into the soil and then leaches upwards
    and then starts to make humans sick cruel but true fact
    why not ring and ask what they did with your old roof

    3146bj says: Sorry to disillusion you, stretch, but buried asbestos does not "leach upwards" as you claim. Asbestos is a silicon crystal based fibre and is not water soluble, so it cannot leach into of the soil. The only risk to humans from buried asbestos is disturbance of the packaging and exposure to the atmosphere with consequent fibres spread into the air.

    The damage it causes in human lungs (asbestosis) is mechanical, from flying fibres, i.e. scratching or scouring of the lung lining, which becomes the basis for further damage to the lining, such as mesothelioma. Returning asbestos to the ground in an area where it will not be disturbed to produce airborne fibres is the safest method of disposal.

    stretch says: cool we are bringing all the aspestos to the area where you live and we are going to build a childrens school on top of the site where we dump and bury it
    and in lets say 20 years lets listen to the crys of the local adults we have a former school in the new england area where the kids used to cross the road to further education
    stamped all over it is contaminated site
