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

stretch says: i agree and you should make sure they are registered for the job of removal

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 Reply

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. Reply

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 Reply
